By car you can easily acces the Eemplein through parking garage Eemplein which is situated under the Eemplein. Enter from the north side.
Attention: this parking garage is reachable till 9.45 hr. The street on which the garage entrance is situated is also the startlane of all distances (except the MiniMarathon for kids). There are other parking garages available nearby.
