LOGISTICS NOTE

WALK OF HOPE
AMSTERDAM & THE HAGUE
THE NETHERLANDS
28 – 31 MARCH 2017
ENTRY VISAS

Participants arriving from India need a visa. VFS Global Services is the organisation to deal with for getting a visa. All information for a smooth procedure can be found here:
http://www.vfsglobal.com/netherlands/india/
TRANSPORTATION FROM AMSTERDAM SCHIPHOL AIRPORT
TO THE HAGUE

Schiphol has its own train station. The best is to take the train to The Hague Central Station (Den Haag Centraal Station) by the Intercity line. From Central Station The Hague there are many connections for public transport by bus or tram to other places in the Hague. Tickets can be bought in the central hall on the ground floor. One lower level all the trains arrive (and depart).

PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN THE HAGUE

The easiest and cheapest way is to buy a ticket for a full day.
There are two possibilities:
A ticket for one full day (6,50 euro)
A ticket for three full days (the ‘3 Day The Hague Travelcard’) which costs 16,50 euro
!!!Attention: don’t buy the so called “Tourist Day Ticket”. It costs much more (13,50 euro for one day) because gives also possibillities outside of The Hague!
Buying tickets can be done at the train stations The Hague Central Station and The Hague Hollands Spoor (at the HTM Service Point) and also in many hotels in The Hague.
WORKING LANGUAGES

The meetings will be in English.
WEATHER

The weather in the Netherlands at the end of March is 7-11 degrees Celsius. (44-51 degrees Fahrenheit). Usually cloudy and often rain.
CURRENCY

The official currency is the Euro (EUR). It is best to have the right currency already available when you arrive in the Netherlands. Paying by creditcard is widely accepted in hotels, restaurants and big shops, but better ask first, especially when you do not have alternative payment.
ELECTRICITY

Electrical current is 220-230 volts, 50Hz. Attention: power plugs in India are different from the Netherlands. An adaptor is needed for Schuko power plugs to use the power plugs from India in the Netherlands.
ACCOMMODATION

There are many hotels in The Hague, expensive and less expensive, but never really cheap.
Reasonable accommodation in hotels starts usually from 95 euros for one day (2 persons bedroom). See list of hotels.

Another, financially more attractive, option is airbnb (www.airbnb.nl). This is the Dutch version of the international website. On the first page of the website, down under choose for the english language and other currency.
Airbnb gives the posibility to rent one or more rooms or a whole house in The Hague for one or more days. It can be an attractive alternative, also when travelling with more persons together. Everything can be arranged by internet.

Another option, especially for the young ones, is Hostelworld: they represent 6 hostels in the Hague. All information, also for booking, is on the internet:
http://www.hostelworld.com
Just mention:
The Hague, Netherlands,
the date of “check in” and
“check out” and
“the number of guests”
and you’ll find all accommodations.
