Public transport

The Sparta Stadium is very easy to reach by public transport from Rotterdam Central Station.
Tram 8 stops in front of the stadium, station 'Spangen / Spartastraat', right in front of the old Castle.
(With tram 8 you can also see a huge part of the city Rotterdam, which gives you an extra experience but it will take a bit more time.)
Bus 38, which also departs from Rotterdam Central Station, stops at about 100 metres if you go out at station 'Beukelsbrug'.
Fancy to figure out the Rotterdam Subway (metro)-network? Use metrostation 'Marconiplein' and walk 5 - 10 minutes to the stadium.
You can also use trainstation Schiedam Centrum and walk 15 minutes to the stadium.


Reviews from people who came before you with a visit to Sparta Rotterdam:


Rotterdam is a young, dynamic metropolis that continues to renew itself at a rapid pace. Whether it's the ever-changing skyline full of bold architecture, our port that is considered the smartest in the world, or the 'we-can-do-it' mentality of the residents. Rotterdam is a city with character, energy and always on the move.  A city of forerunners, pioneers and people who dare and want to make a difference.
