More info on the 'OV chip card' here.
BIKESBicycles are the preferred method of transportation around the city. If you are interested in renting a bike, we can help you once you have arrived. Also, the hotel provides a few bikes for their guests but selection is limited.
UBER/TAXISUber and taxis offer an alternative (albeit and expensive one) when travelling after hours or greater distances. Please download the appropriate apps for these services.
LAPTOPSAlthough not a necessity, we recommend bringing your laptop to help maximize your workflow during the Summer Sessions. There is WIFI at both the studio and hotel.
SMARTPHONESAlso, we will communicate on a daily basis using mobile apps such as Whatsapp and Slack, so a smartphone with mobile data is advantageous. Most local Dutch carriers offer pre-paid sim plans incl. 5GB (or more) of data for about €10. We recommend bringing an extra smartphone or a MIFI router/hotspot for local mobile data use.
