To the former camp site 
The former camp site, where monuments like the National Westerbork Memorial are located, is situated almost 2 miles from the Herinneringscentrum Kamp Westerbork. Close to the site is Astron, the Dutch Institute for Radio Astronomy. Because of this, motorised vehicles and the use of electronic devices are prohibited in this area, as these disturb Astron’s observation activity. Infringement of these rules could incur a fine so we advise you to walk, cycle or make use of the Visitor Centre bus service (single ticket € 1,50 / return ticket € 2,00). Busses leave every 20 minutes from the front of the museum.
