Get in

Bussum is easily reached by train: Naarden-Bussum station is 21 minutes from Amsterdam Central, and 23 minutes from Utrecht via Hilversum. The centre of town is about 5-10 minutes walk from the station.

You can cycle from the centre of Amsterdam to the centre of Bussum, at an easy pace, in less than 2 hours. Most of the route has separate cycle lanes.

Bussum is easilly reached by car. The A1 passes all around the town.

Use a bike or walk. A car will do fine too.


The neigbourhood called "Spiegel" is beautifull. Furthermore there are some parks that are wortwhile. Have a walk on the meadows. Go to Naarden and see the fort. On of the best ways to see the country side around Bussum is by bike. A bike tour through 't Gooi is recommanded.


  • Filmhuis, 't Elcker Theater. This is a cinema that shows only cultural movies.
  • Spant - a large theatre that also serves as a congress centre.
  • Stars - a club and to get in you need to be a member or you need to be introduced. You could give it a try though since it is the only place to really dance.
