A bus trip is a good idea, and the bus heads off right from the airport. Anyway please note that the schedule has not any night bus routes. Trains don’t go in the nights, too, so if you go by train you will need to change trains on the way. Thus this option will hardly fit families with children and elderly people. Moreover, speeding trains don’t head off from the airport; you need to get to them first.
