Night trains normally run from Rotterdam Centraal to major cities in Randstad. Be sure to check the NS website, especially for your journey after the event. International trains are at nsinternational.nl and Google Flights is a good place to start for cheap(er) fares.
Parking is available within walking distance for under €15 for the entire event. Link to Parkopedia.
The area is fairly safe for walking. However, be aware that there are several bars and a biergarten around the corner: You’ll run into them if you walk through the tunnel or down Schiekade. These can be rowdy, as can the bars/restaurants on Stadhuisplein.
There are quite a few full-service hotels and lower-cost options within 2km. Join the Otterdance Information and Coordination Group on Telegram for help.
Here are some lower-cost options. (Otterdance isn’t connected with these businesses and can’t guarantee availability, services, or prices.)
- King Kong Hostel, 1,3km. It’s on a “party street”, so expect quite a bit of noise.
- Stayokay Hostel, 1,5km. In the famous “Cube houses”!
- Sparks Hostel, 700m. Cheap and close! (Note: No rooms available when we checked on 14 March. 🙁 )
