train Schiphol to Leiden

Next year arriving Schiphol late afternoon and wish to catch train to Leiden. How many stops before we need to get off, which platform and tickets?? Might use trains 6 - 8 times would single tickets be the way to go? So many things running through head at present, no doubt will have more questions later. Many thanks.

Fast trains Leiden is the next stop about 15 mins.

Just look at the departure signs of the train station to see which platform.

Tickets probably just singles but there might be other options depending on where you're going.

Normally platform 5 or 6. These are in fact the opposite sides of the same platform. Which of both (5 or 6) is only announced a couple of minutes before the train rolls in.

There are fast Intercity trains for which Leiden is the first stop, and slightly slower Sprinter trains (same price) for which Leiden is the fourth stop. In either case, there will be screens displaying the next stop.

I am going to Leiden in two weeks. Did you have to buy single train tickets every time or is their some sort of pass available?
