Transport from Schiphol Amsterdam Airport:
Schiphol Amsterdam Airport (airport code AMS)
is the most conveniently located major airport. After arriving at
Schiphol airport the easiest way to travel to Nijmegen is to take the
train (company called NS). Between 07:00 and 21:00 direct trains leave
from Schiphol to Nijmegen every half an hour at XX:29 and
XX:59. Nijmegen is the terminal stop of this train. Between 04:00 and
07:00 and between 21:00 and 23:14 Nijmegen can be reached from Schiphol
by first taking the train to Utrecht Central Station and change in
Utrecht for the train to Nijmegen (other side of the platform).
