The closest airports are Eindhoven airport, Rotterdam airport and Schiphol (Amsterdam airport); these can be reached by public transportation. Weeze is reachable by car.
Some years ago all public transportation got unified to accept a form of electronic payment, the OV Chipcard. While the card is quite famous in crypto and security as a subject of research, it can also be used for public transportation. The card costs 7.50 EUR but saves you 1 EUR on every train ride (fee for the paper card) and around 1.50 EUR for short bus rides. You need to check in at the start of your journey and out at the end of it. Fees are based on distance.
