Route Description

By car:

All highways towards Amsterdam lead to the ring road around Amsterdam, the A10. Choose direction Utrecht-Den Haag if you come from Amersfoort. From Utrecht/Den Haag/Schiphol/Haarlem/Zaandam, follow the directions to Amersfoort.

Take exit Watergraafsmeer/S113. At the end of the exit, follow the directions to Watergraafsmeer/Science Park. You will now be driving on the Middenweg. Follow the signs Science Park/Jaap Edenhal. Turn right at the first big intersection, this is the Kruislaan.

Drive straight on for about 1.5 kilometer. You will reach the X/OS offices by driving under the railroad bridge and continuing about 400 meter straight on. Then turn to the right (you see an orange building called Universum, the sportcenter of the university) and look for parking P4. Note that the road after the railroad bridge is renamed to Science Park per January 1, 2009, but maps and route planners might still know it as Kruislaan.

With public transport:

From Central Station in Amsterdam, take the train or metro to Amsterdam-Amstel station. From Amsterdam-Amstel station, take bus 40 to Muiderpoortstation or bus 240 to Science Park. Get-off at the stop called Science Park Aqua. You can also take bus 40 to Amstelstation from Amsterdam-Muiderpoort station. Get-off at the same stop as mentioned above. See the GVB website (Amsterdam public transport) for timetable information of bus 40 and 240.
