We advise you to arrive by bike, to prevent traffic jams or parking problems. You can cycle to the Ginkels Heath via the cycle path next to the N224 and via the Wijde Veldweg. The organization will indicate where you can park your bicycle. The bicycle parking spaces are also listed on the floor plan above.
You can also place your bicycle on the back of the car and park it on P West (De Schuilplaats). That parking space is specially designed as a ride & bike parking space. Navigation address: Otterloseweg 18A, Ede.
You can arrive by train at the Ede-Wageningen railway station. This is a intercity station. Trains from Amsterdam, Utrecht and Arnhem go on a regular basis, around 4 times an hour.
There is a bus stop on the south side of the Ede-Wageningen railway station. This bus is for people who arrive by train and for people who park at P South (Akoesticum).
There is also a bus stop for people who parked at the P North (MOB-complex). Both buses drive to and leave from the N224. It's approximately 500 meters from this stop to the Ginkel Heath.
The first buses depart from 8.00 and drive until all visitors have left the Ginkel Heath in the afternoon. The program lasts until 17.00.
There are two bus stops for the free shuttle buses.
When you travel back to the train station or parking lots, make sure to enter the right bus. The buses don't travel to both locations, instead they make their own round trip to and from Ginkel Heath.
Shuttle buses with a low entry level are available for the elderly and people with reduced mobility. There is no room for electric wheelchairs and a large pram on the bus. You can bring a folding wheelchairs or buggies, provided the bus has enough space in the cargo hold.
If you want to arrive by car, it’s important to know that there is little room to park the car at the Ginkel Heath.
The N224 from the direction of Ede will be closed for traffic from 06.00 hours. Only the shuttle buses, vehicles with a pass provided by the organization and those who have an official disabled parking card will be allowed to pass. Parking on the roadside and along the road is not allowed.

Disabled parking space on Ginkel Heath
We have a limited number of parking spaces available for passenger cars that carry an official disabled parking card. There is no need to apply for a drive-through card, your personal disabled parking card serves as such. Inspection takes place at the road barrier. You don't have to register in advance. When the space if full, the card will still allow you to approach P East (Sheep shed), provided there is still room on this parking space.
