Travel and Visas
Eindhoven has direct train connections to Amsterdam, Amsterdam Airport, Rotterdam, and Den Haag to the north/west and to Venlo and Maastricht to the east/south. The closest airports are Eindhoven airport, Rotterdam airport and Schiphol (Amsterdam airport); these can be reached by public transportation. Weeze is reachable by car.
Some years ago all public transportation got unified to accept a form of electronic payment, the OV Chipcard. While the card is quite famous in crypto and security as a subject of research, it can also be used for public transportation. The card costs 7.50 EUR but saves you 1 EUR on every train ride (fee for the paper card) and around 1.50 EUR for short bus rides. You need to check in at the start of your journey and out at the end of it. Fees are based on distance.
If you need a visa please email Tanja Lange with the required details, including a reference to your homepage and contact information of your supervisor or company.
