Parking

Next to the Indoor Sport Centrum is a parking garage. It is not big enough to accommodate all but there are 2 parking areas situated at 750m. The official parking is the one near the swimming pool, which will be indicated and we will run a shuttle service between parking and Indoor Sport Centrum. For your convenience there will be a kiss & ride zone in front of the Indoor Sport Center.

We do not host a shuttle service from that parking, but you are free to park here.
