The Hague is easily accessible from the rest of the Netherlands and Europe, by car, train, airplane and ferry. The Hague is situated about one hundred and fifty kilometres from Germany, less than one hundred kilometres from Belgium and twenty minutes from the ports of Rotterdam and Hook of Holland, with ferry services from the UK every day.

The Hague is easily accessible by air via either Amsterdam's Schiphol airport, which is only 30 minutes direct train journey or Rotterdam airport.

Trains from the Schiphol airport to The Hague run at least twice per hour and cost €7.00 one way. The train station is directly outside the Arrivals Terminal at Amsterdam Airport and it is possible to buy the train ticket prior to leaving the Arrivals area or in the main concourse of the train station.

Finally, The Hague has two main train stations. Trains from Utrecht and Germany arrive at Central Station, while trains from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Belgium and France (including a Thalys service from Paris) arrive at Hollands Spoor Station.

Local transport links to other nearby cities including Delft and Rotterdam are very good and "National Strippenkaart" can be used in The Hague or indeed anywhere across the Netherlands. The number of ticket strips to be stamped depends on the number of zones being crossed. While the "National Strippenkaart" of 15 or 45 strips offer the best value for money, two or three zone tickets can be bought from drivers and day tickets are also available allowing unlimited travel within certain zones.
