Hoek van Holland

Hoek van Holland or Hook of Holland, district of Rotterdam, W Netherlands, on the North Sea. It is an outer port of Rotterdam, with which it is connected by the New Waterway. It is a terminus for ships that cross the English Channel from Harwich, England.
Hoek van Holland Haven is a railway station in the town of Hoek van Holland in the Netherlands. The station serves the port, which connects the Netherlands with Great Britain; via this connection, Hoek van Holland Haven serves as the Dutch rail terminus of the Dutchflyer service (with Harwich International as the English terminus), connected by Stena Line ferries.

In earlier days, the station was an important station for international trains to Germany and further. Since airline tickets have become much cheaper, the ferry between Harwich and Hoek van Holland is much less popular and there hasn't been an international train on the station in years.

Today, a commuter service to Rotterdam is operated every 30 minutes during the whole day. A half hourly service to Hoek van Holland Strand is operated during the summer season, during the winter season this service is reduced to one train per hour.

The 'Boat Train' service between Amsterdam and Hoek van Holland ended in December 2006.
