Rotterdam The Hague Airport is one of the largest airports in the Netherlands. Most of its incoming flights come from other airports in Europe. It's a great option for travellers who wish to avoid the hassle of larger airports. It doesn't have many shops and restaurants, though the Grand Café De Horizon offers great views of the runway.
The airport is located five miles (8km) north of Rotterdam.
Getting to the city
A high-speed train called RandstadRail connects the airport to The Hague, Leidschendam, Pijnacker, Zoetermeer and Rotterdam Central Station. Travellers can catch trains to Antwerp, Brussels and Paris from the central station. They'll need to buy an 'OV-Chipkaart' (Public Transport Chip Card) from a newsagent at the airport to use public transport.
The RET bus connects to the Meijersplein metro station, where travellers can transfer to Line E, which heads to the city centre. For a more direct route, travellers can take the No. 33 bus to Rotterdam Central Station. Night transport is available into the early morning.
