Getting around in Utrecht

Dinner Program, October 3rd & 4th

Dinner on Wednesday will take place at a location nearby the city centre. Immediately after the Wednesday program is complete (~18:30) we will assemble at a location outside the UMCU. This will be announced during the day. Between 18:30 and 19:00, busses will arrive to take conference participants to the Spoorweg Museum for reception, tour and dinner:

Maliebaanstation 16, 3581 XW Utrecht


The dinner program is expected to end around 22:00. Busses will be on hand to shuttle participants from the museum to Hotel Mitland between 22:00 and 22:30. Keep in mind that the bus schedule is very strict and if you miss your ride you will have to arrange own transportation (this shouldn’t be a problem as we hope you all will indulge in Utrecht’s bicycling culture during your visit).
Dinner, Thursday October 4th
Dinner on Thursday will be at a location on campus (The Basket, Uithof location). This restaurant is a 10 minute walk from the hospital. We will guide you to the restaurant at the conclusion of the days program. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to hotel/city center etc. after dinner.

If you have any food allergies please let us know ASAP so that we can make arrangements if possible.
