Public Transportation

Train, bus and magic carpet

The best way to travel is by public transportation! You meet new people, don't have to wait in traffic for a parking spot and it's better for the environment. We advise you all to come by public transport.

Below you can find the best ways to get to Castlefest. Enjoy your trip and see you there!

By train

To reach Castlefest by train, please travel to one of the NS stations in the area. From here you can take the shuttle bus to get to the festival grounds. During Castlefest 2023, the shuttle bus routes will include the following train stations:

  • Station Nieuw-Vennep
  • Station Sassenheim
  • Station Voorhout

Plan your trip shortly before departure on to see up-to-date travel information.

Please mind! In 2023, station Hillegom is NOT part of the bus routes.

By shuttle bus

During Castlefest 2023, shuttle buses will once again run between the festival site and various train stations in the area. A shuttle bus ticket is a return ticket and can be used to get to the festival and back. You'll find them in our ticket shop. The shuttle buses will depart from the bus stops of the P+R car parks next to the train stations. 

Last year, the shuttle buses were not running as planned. We have taken extensive time to evaluate and make new plans to avoid situations from the past. For upcoming edition, the shuttle buses will therefore run continuously back and forth from all three shuttle bus locations. Depending on traffic, the waiting time will be between 15 and 30 minutes. In addition, extra bus personnel will be on call and we will have extra buses stand-by in case one of the buses on route breaks down. This way, we make sure you can enjoy Castlefest as soon as possible.

Shuttle bus route 1: Nieuw-Vennep 

In Nieuw-Vennep there are two P+R car parks. The shuttle bus will stop at both locations.
