Getting to DUS from Holland

I've got an upcoming flight from DUS that leaves at 10h55 and am assuming that it's probably to book an airport hotel the night before to avoid any problems.

What's the best way to get to DUS from the north, more specifically Den Haag? I can see some of the train schedules online, but am unsure about which one provides the easiest access to the airport.

Thanks!

Easiest is to take any domestic train to either Amsterdam Centraal or Utrecht Centraal and hop on the ICE Internationaal to Düsseldorf Central from there. There's a commuter rail service from there to DUS. Schedules and tickets are available at www.nshispeed.nl

Yep, seeing it now...only 19 euros for the day I want too - great deal!

Thanks

You do however not go up to Düsseldorf Centraal but leave the ICE in Duisburg and change to the local train there. The airport in in the middle between Duisburg and Düsseldorf

Keep in mind that trains only run every two hours on this route, which can be slightly annoying as it can mean a pretty early departure.
