Special nights.

Wednesday, Dutch Night.

The Conferencecentre, the ROC, is the place to be at the Dutch Night.
Here you see photographs from the entrance and the café. Everything is empty now, but what will happen there at this moving night? We keep it a surprise for you.
But come an join us for a special Dutch evening.

Thursday, Reception at the Townhall.

Preceding the Night on the Town we will have a reception hosted by the deputy mayor in the townhall of Amsterdam.
The present townhall is the 'Stopera', an impressive building in the centre of Amsterdam on the river Amstel and the Waterlooplein flea market.
It combines the townhall (STadhuis) and the OPERA theatre.

Thursday, Night on the town.


Following the reception we walk across the square to the Amstel where the rivercruise boats are awaiting us.
We than go for an extended boattrip through the interesting canals of Amsterdam, among which of course the Keizersgracht ('Emperors' Canal) and the Prinsengracht (Princes' Canal).
It is here that the glory of Amsterdam developed in the Golden Age.
Impressive 17th century office buildings, warehouses and residences of wealthy merchants line the canals and are still in use.

Dinner at restaurant De Zouthaven (the Salt Port).

We moor at the Muziekgebouw, the concertbuilding on the harbour 'het IJ'. Here the really great musicians perform.
This famous building was designed by the Danish firm of architects 3XN and built on a peninsula on top of the IJ-tunnel, close to Central Station and the centre of Amsterdam.
However, we will pass the two concert halls and go to restaurant Zouthaven, also situated in this building.
Weather permitting we can sit on the terrace.
The restaurant offers a spectacular view of the IJ with its multitude of different ships.
And perhaps we can sing a few Amsterdam songs together.

Friday, The Banquet.

Come and join us for a festive banquet with music and surprises.
It will take place at a beautiful location: the Miranda Pavillion on the river Amstel, an idyllic spot away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam.
The dinner will be in the upstairs room, offering a great view of the green surroundings.
Dessert and coffee will be served in the glazed verandah and on the terrace on the waterfront.
Entertainment will be taken care of by (among others) Guzel van de Wolga, a singer with a Tartar background who sings music from various countries in America, Europe and Asia.
