The closest airport is Schiphol (Amsterdam). Enter Arrivals and follow the signs from Schiphol Arrival Hall to the Railway Station: “to the trains”. At the train station you can purchase a ticket to “Ede-Wageningen” from one of the yellow vending machines, or at the Service Desk.

Then switch to bus line 352, 51 or 53 that head towards Arnhem. You have to get off at the third stop called “Wageningse Berg”. The rest of the route you have to travel by foot.
