    Awesome! Am going to the gig on my own, so would be great to meet some other AC/DC addicts and have a few beers before the gig!
  1.  
    Yeah i am there. Just trying to figure out the easiest way to get there. Dusseldorf maybe, and then train or bus?

    Tobe:

    Easiest/cheapest is from dusseldorf (Weeze) and than take a direct shuttle bus to Arnhem. Price depends on the amount of people that join in the minibus: http://www.airport-w...

    Another easy option is from Schiphol (Amsterdam) and than take a direct train. Price of flying to Schiphol is often more expensive than to dusseldorf (Weeze)

    I actually found a better price to Amsterdam right now with Norwegian air from Stockholm. Was thinking of a couple of days in Amsterdam before going to Arnhem. Never been to Amsterdam either so i could make this to a mini vacation.

    Keep in mind that the Weeze (Ryanair) airport is not close to Duesseldorf.

    D-dorf has a big international airport itself too, but flights can be more expensive (but often cheap too)

    Flying in to Amsterdam early doors on the 5th, and will be shooting straight to Arnhem by train and dumping bags at the "Dutch Hotel".
    If anyone fancies a beer or two, give me a shout and we can exchange numbers.

    I'm going. Probably not going to do a meet-up, as I'm with a whole bunch of friends, and I'm quite new here, so nobody really knows me.

    Yep. This gig is going to be epic. Can't commit to meet up just yet as person driving me is pretty unpredictable, and we are arriving in Amsterdam on Saturday, which is not going to help.

    Sounds like the person driving could be high on angel dust while driving, or something.

    How long is the walk from Amsterdam ... ?
  7.  
    Walk?

    80 kilometres, if you walk in a straight line. At an average walking speed of 5 km per hour that would take you 16 hours without breaks -if- you could walk in a straight line. xD

    I am thinking of hiring a bicycle in Amsterdam. What can it take? 4 hours? Come to think of it i´ll just take the train instead.
  9.  
    I have been on this forum since february last year and i can´t say that i "know" people here. Thats the reason to meet up. I am in Amsterdam from sunday to tuesday, and am staying at Best Western in Arnhem from tuesday so i might meet you up Azel and anyone else that might be interested chatting over 10 beers or something.

    Fans won´t be that hard to find i reckon.

    Question for any Dutch fans, in theory rather than stay overnight in Arnhem. Could it be possible to get a train back to Amsterdam AFTER the concert ?
  10.  
    Yes ofcourse. Just check how late the last train to Amsterdam goes. Go from Arnhem Centraal to Amsterdam Centraal. Check www.ns.nl

    Posted By: GShootinQuestion for any Dutch fans, in theory rather than stay overnight in Arnhem. Could it be possible to get a train back to Amsterdam AFTER the concert ?


    Yes, that should be possible. I just checked.

    Trains from Arnhem to Amsterdam leave every 30 minutes, the last train from Arnhem to Amsterdam on May 5th leaves one minute past midnight (00:01). Train ride to Amsterdam takes one hour and 7 minutes.

    Unfortunately Arnhem isn't on the "night net", so there's no nighttrains from Arnhem.

    So you just have to be sure you can make the midnight train. The stadium isn't too far from the train station (only a few minutes by bus), so you could even walk it if necessary.

    Cheers! I may decide to stay in Arnhem for some peace and quiet mind

    The gelredome parking system is 10/10, Most of the time you won't having problems by traffic jam. The people who work there have everything under control. So take it easy and relax it won't be a madness.

    Just another thing on 5 may the Netherlands celebrate the Liberation Day. And since Arnhem has also some history about WWII (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberation_of_Arnhem) there could be some great events in the city. So you can make a nice trip.

    Just a recommendation if you haven't other plans.
  12.  
    hello,
    finally i'll see the first of a tour after 25 years that i following AC/DC!

    Had a quick browse last night, nothing stands out. Will have another shooftie later.


    Also on my jack, so happy to meet up for beers, tales and spacecakes.
  15.  
    I would like to meet up, but I won't, because I'm going with a group of friends, and too many meet-ups/people will stress me out a little too much.
  16.  
    Oi mates. Wont be making it beacuse of school exams :( Duty is calling. Hope you guys have a massive evening at the Gelredome.

    Trouwens, het is prima te doen, het parkeren bij de Gelredome. Met maiden paar jaar terug geweest, auto in woonwijk geparkeerd, binnen 10 minuten weer op de snelweg! Prima te doen.

    Will be there but will be queueing early to secure a spot in the golden circle as they will hand out the wrists for this first come first serve. Usually there are drinks served outside the stadium for those queueing. From what I remember there are no pubs close tho the stadium.
