Adjusted timetable

Due to a number of major events throughout the Netherlands, the timetable has been adjusted for Friday 3, Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September along various routes. This may affect your train journey. Check, plan and register your journey in the Travel Planner or NS app before you leave.


Adjusted timetable: 3, 4 and 5 September

During the weekend of 3, 4 and 5 September, in addition to the racing at Zandvoort, there are other events in the country to which passengers will be travelling, such as the World Port Days in Rotterdam. We will be running the most trains where we expect the most passengers.

We will be running extra trains between Amsterdam Central Station and Zandvoort. From certain directions, we'll be starting earlier with trains to Amsterdam Centraal, such as from the south on Sunday. On a number of less busy routes we'll be running fewer or shorter trains on these days.
