It is located in the centre of Utrecht’s Leidsche Rijn suburb along a number of primary cycling routes, and also along Het Lint, a cycling and pedestrian loop offering convenient and fast access from Vleuten.

From Utrecht centre/north-east/north-west:
Cycling from the centre or north of the city, take Vleutenseweg towards Leidsche Rijn, crossing the yellow bridge. Continue past the CineMec (Pathé cinema) into Leidsche Rijn and then parallel to the Parkwijk bus lane (approx. 1.5 km). The bicycle lane curves to the left and intersects Groenedijk at a set of traffic lights. Turn right onto Groenedijk and then continue until you reach Castellum Hoge Woerd. There are bicycle stalls to the right in the forecourt.
From Utrecht south:
Cycling from the south of the city, take Dominee Martin Luther Kinglaan and cross the Meernbrug (bridge) across Amsterdam Rijnkanaal. The bicycle lane continues over the A2 motorway underpass. On reaching the Hoge Weide district, turn left, then cross Stadsbaan at the traffic lights. Continue another 400 metres along the bicycle lane and then turn right onto Groenedijk. Keep on this lane until you reach Castellum Hoge Woerd. There are bicycle stalls to the right in the forecourt.
