Accommodation and travel

Accommodation is not included in the registration fee.

We can suggest the Hotel Ibis Leiden Centre (Stationsplein 240, 2312 AR Leiden, Netherlands). It is only 5’ walk far from the venue and very close to the train station. You can of course stay in any other hotel of your choice. There are many other hotels in the same area.

The closest airport to reach Leiden is Amsterdam Schiphol. From there you can get a direct train to Leiden Centraal. The trip takes around 30’. Please click here for further information about this.
