How to get to the Humaniversity
The Humaniversity is located in Egmond aan Zee, a village on the north-west coast of Holland, about an hour from Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport.
By Public Transportation from Amsterdam or Schiphol Airport:
Train and Taxi
Take the train from Schiphol Airport or Amsterdam Central Station to Heiloo Station (info at www.ns.nl). You will need to change trains at Sloterdijk Station if you are coming from the airport and the journey takes around one hour. When you buy your train ticket at Schiphol Airport ask the train information desk what time your train is expected to arrive in Heiloo. While still at the airport, call the taxi company Zwart, 0031 (0)72 533-1313 and reserve a taxi from Heiloo to the Humaniversity that fits with your expected arrival time. That way you won't have to wait too long at Heiloo.
The taxi number above costs € 15.00 per taxi to take you to the Humaniversity. This means that if you are more people traveling together, you pay less per person. They will bring you to the front gate of our property. You can also push the button for the OV-taxi at the Heiloo train station, but this lower cost taxi service usually takes longer to arrive.
To return you need to call Taxi Zwart from your phone, leaving your name and number with them. Call them well in advance, especially for very early or late pick-up times. The low price of € 15.00 means you need to allow a window of 15 min before or after the scheduled pick-up time for the taxi to arrive and depart. Wait in time at reception for them to pick you up.
If you want to have their taxi to be exactly on time, the service costs € 25.00.
Train and bus
If you take the train to Castricum instead of Heiloo, you can take the Alkmaar bus (number 165) to Egmond aan Zee, which stops at the bus station in Egmond aan Zee. This costs € 2.50. The first bus Monday to Friday departs Castricum at 06:40, and then every hour until the last bus departs at 22:42. For the schedule of Saturdays and Sundays, please see www.connexxion.nl or www.9292ov.nl.
You can also take the train to Alkmaar, and bus (number 165) to Egmond aan Zee. This costs € 2.20. Traveling via Alkmaar takes approximately half an hour longer than via Castricum.
Drive on the A9 to the roundabout at Alkmaar. Then take the N9, towards Den Helder and follow the signs to Egmond, after that Egmond aan Zee and continue until you see the Humaniversity on your right.
If you are arriving by car, please send us details of your vehicle in advance. Please include the make of your car, the colour and license plate number. Please be aware that at times when we have many cars arriving, you will need to park on the street. In Egmond aan Zee there is paid parking from 1 March until 1 november. Parking is free from 2 November until the end of February.
At arrival, please enter the main gate and unload your luggage at the reception. In the Booking Office you will be informed about where you can park.
