In Arnhem, the best way to reach the conference centre `Papendal' is to buy a `train taxi ticket' at the railway station (Dfl 6 per person, you can buy this at Schiphol with your train ticket), and take a taxi designated as `train taxi' (=cheap group taxi). Other taxis cost around Dfl 25 per trip.

A harder way is to go by bus: buy a `strip ticket' (Dfl 11, valid for 5 bus rides) at the railway station, leave the station at the side exit and take the yellow VAD bus direction Lelystad (leaves x.13, x=7...23 and x.43, x=6...8,14...17), leave at stop `West-end'.
