The Four Days Marches draw thousands of people to the city of Nijmegen to support their friends or family, to witness this impressive marching event and/or to soak up the wonderful atmosphere. The huge crowds put considerable pressure on the local hospitality, the road network and public transport. Therefore, participants and spectators are advised to use public transport or travel by bike as much as possible.
During the Four Days Marches bus and railway companies operate extended services in Nijmegen and the surrounding area. In the early hours of the morning trains will take you from surrounding towns and villages into Nijmegen town centre. The Four Days Marches starting point is approximately a 10 minute walk from Nijmegen Central Station.
The exact timetables will be made public 1 or 2 weeks prior to the Four Days Marches. The following websites will give you the information you need about the public transport during the Four Days Marches.
