Public transportation
From the direction Zwolle/Amersfoort/Utrecht/Amsterdam two trains arrive in Groningen per hour, 15 minutes past the hour and 5 minutes to the hour. There is also a train arriving 11:28 on saturday from Leer (Ostfriesland, Germany), connecting for eg: Oldenburg (1h56m travel), Bremen (2h34m travel), Hamburg (3h42m travel), Hannover (4h07m travel). From Bremen and Oldenburg, there is also an express busline:

From the train station it is only about 700 meters walking distance to the playing venue, so taking a bus is not worth the effort, unless you have a lot of trouble walking (in that case: Line 5 towards Noorderstation, get off at stop Zuiderdiep/Schoolholm, see red line on the map below)

Parking Centrum(dutch) is directly adjacent to the playing venue. Parking there costs about € 2,- per hour, € 15,- per day. Other parkings in the city center have similar prices.

On sunday, parking in the street is free. On saturday, you have to pay between 9.00 and 24.00, costing € 1,80 per hour, and you may only park for 30 minutes.


Red marker is tournament venue, blue line is walking route.

I'm arriving to Groningen on Friday. I heard that you can accommodate players if they bring a sleeping bag and a matress with them. Can you accommodate me on friday and saturday nights?

Thank you beforehand,
Simo Vanhala
