Belsen is accessed using the Sat Nav address; Winsener Strasse 1, Loheide 29303. The entrance to the village is off the main road, opposite the main entrance to the British Military Camp.
There are a few local buses stop in this village and travel through other outlying small villages to the nearest towns where access can be obtained to other forms of public transport (e.g trains), and taxi's are freely available, although expensive. It is not on a direct, easy access route to main towns and for this reason, persons living in (or visiting)this village will require their own method of transport.
