Need to know how to get there or where to stay when you arrive in Enschede? Below we've compiled an extensive couple of guides for all budgets and all nationalities compiled through our 6 events of experience in this venue. Feel free to ask any question about travel of accomodation in the comments below, rest assured someone will have the answer!
- The most convenient and cost effective option to get to the WZZRD Gaming center in Enschede for international travelers is to fly into Amsterdam Schipol Airport and take the intercity train from the airport, direct to Enschede. This journey takes approximately 2 hours (although it has been known to take 3 on a bad day). The airport is connected to the main national train service, and you can find alternative routes via train here. You want to travel to Enschede D not Enschede (Enschede D is the first stop, Enschede is after). Alternatively you can travel to Bremen airport in Germany and then across the border to Holland, this route has been known to be cheaper for Scandinavian travellers. Other airports you can consider travelling to are Eindhoven & Berlin. Its street address for your GPS is WZZRD Cinestar Colosseum 60 7521 PT Enschede[/hide]
