Our activities are held on our campus in Vlodrop-Station, with accommodation in nearby hotels and bungalow parks.
If you have a car, driving to campus will be the easiest transportation option since MERU is fairly deep in the Meinweg National Park.
For some courses transportation from certain hotels to campus will be organized.

One of the easiest ways to get to campus is to fly into Düsseldorf Airport and take a taxi or hired car to campus. The airport in Düsseldorf is about an hour’s drive to Vlodrop-Station. Participants have used the taxi company Rabbit Cab with success.
A less expensive, but longer, option is to take the train from Düsseldorf Airport to Dalheim, with a connection in Mönchengladbach Hbf. Once you reach Dalheim, it’s about a thirty-minute walk to Vlodrop campus – a beautiful walk in nice weather. You can book train tickets online in advance through this site, which is less expensive than buying them in person. Note that when booking on bahn.com, you’ll want to select the train station with the single word ‘Dalheim’.

Alternatively, you can fly into Eindhoven or Maastricht airports, which are closer to Roermond than Amsterdam but have fewer connections.
To plan your trip within The Netherlands to Roermond, visit the Dutch transportation website. You can use Rabbit Cab to book your taxi ride ahead of time, or take one of the cabs at the Roermond train station.
You can take the train through Belgium to Maastricht, and then take the Dutch train to Roermond using the Belgian train site and the Dutch transportation site to plan your trips. You can alternatively take an inexpensive bus from Brussels Airport with Flixbus to Roermond, which generally goes once per day, or take a bus to Roermond through the German operator DB Bahn.
From Roermond, it’s easiest to take a taxi to reach our Vlodrop campus. You can use the Dutch taxi company Rabbit Cab to book your taxi ride or take one of the cabs at the Roermond train station.
If you need to call a cab from campus, you’re welcome to ask the security guard at reception to call a taxi for you.
Meals are provided in the dining halls. A separate course dining hall is available for lunch and dinner for course participants.
