Public transportation to Harlingen
It is a very practical choice to take the train or the bus. The train runs all the way to the station of ‘Harlingen Haven’ (the port of Harlingen), and from there, the ferry is situated within walking distance. Please be aware that in Leeuwarden station, you are transferring from the NS (the Dutch Railways) onto a local rail transporter; please do not forget to check out from the NS-system and to check in to ‘Arriva’ with your public transportation pass.
You can also take the bus across the Afsluitdijk, the causeway running between the city of Den Oever and the village of Zurich in Friesland. This Q-liner drives regularly between the city of Alkmaar and Harlingen.
