Hoek van Holland Haven railway station
|Station Hoek van Holland Haven|
|Line(s)||Schiedam–Hoek van Holland railway|
The station was an important station for international trains to Germany and beyond. Since airline tickets have become much cheaper, the ferry between Harwich and Hoek van Holland is much less popular and no international trains have been operated from the station for some years, although Hoek van Holland Haven retains four 400 m (440 yd) platforms for this purpose.
A commuter service from Rotterdam Centraal railway station operates every 30 minutes. The service continues to Hoek van Holland Strand railway station, 600 metres further on, during the summer season, reduced during the winter season to one train per hour and only between 11:00 and 16:00.
The 'Boat Train' service between Amsterdam and Hoek van Holland ended in December 2006.
