The Hague Central Station is the main train station in the city of the Hague. In 2005 this station is being renovated and is located near the historical center of the city. It is the largest Terminal station in the Netherlands with 12 tracks.
The Hague Central Station is an important transport node. Different types of (public) transport come together: train, tram, bus and taxi.
Through its two central train stations (Central Station and HS Holland Spoor Station), The Hague has direct rail links to Schiphol Airport (30 mins.), Amsterdam (45 mins), Rotterdam (25 mins.) and Utrecht (35 mins). Many other cities in the country can also be reached directly or with just one layover. International direct train links are available to Antwerp (1h 20), Brussels (2h) and Paris (3h 30); with the opening of the High Speed Line to Brussels in 2007 these times will be cut, but layovers in Rotterdam will be introduced on some trips. Trains to Cologne, Frankfurt or Berlin require layovers in Utrecht or Amersfoort.
