Hoek van Holland Haven railway station

Hoek van Holland Haven (Hook of Holland Harbour) is a railway station in the Netherlands. Trains connect with the Stena Line Dutchflyer boat service to Harwich International in England.

In the past, the station was of importance because it was close to the Hook of Holland Port. It offered many international services to Germany and beyond. The international train services ceased for some years,[citation needed] although Hoek van Holland Haven retains four 400 m (440 yd) platforms for such trains.

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.

A single ticket machine is available at the far end of the platform from the ferry terminal exit.

The Boat Train service between Amsterdam and Hoek van Holland ended in December 2006.

From 1 April 2017 the station will no longer be served by Nederlandse Spoorwegen trains. Instead, the Rotterdam Metro, after reconstruction, will extend its line B to Hoek van Holland in the Fall of 2017.[1]
