For travelling with the public transport you need an OV chipcard. If you don’t travel a lot with public transport in the Netherlands it’s best to by a one time OV chipcard at the ticket machine. The costs are your trip + €1,00. If you’re are travelling back on the same day it’s best to buy a return ticket. With your OV chipcard you need to check-in and check-out when walking through the gates of the station. Not paying for your ticket can get you a fine by €35,00 + your travel price. So don’t forget to check-in! Planning your travel with public transport in The Netherlands can easily be found at
