Times

Saturday June 2

 

Optional: field trip (in case of sufficient participants)

Depending on the number of participant one of the following options will be selected.

Option 1: The Parliament Building and Smart city of Den Haag. We will take the tram from Delft to Den Haag Central in the morning. In Den Haag, we will have a sightseeing tour which includes a visit to the building of the Dutch government called “Binnenhof” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binnenhof) and the city center of Den Haag. Thereafter, we will visit the Mauritshuis (https://www.mauritshuis.nl/en/) which has some historical paintings including 'Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring'. Thereafter we will have lunch, but the prices are not included in the tour. In the afternoon, we will visit Madurodam (https://www.madurodam.nl/en) to discover Hollands highlights and heritage in miniature form. After this visit, participants can return to Delft or we can have a joint dinner in Scheveningen at the beach (the prices are not included in the tour) and then return to Delft.

Option 2: (only when there are sufficient participants) Deltaworks and Port of Rotterdam. In the morning, a bus will leave from Delft and go to the Measlantkeering (http://www.keringhuis.nl/index.php?id=37). The Keringhuis shows how we still manage to keep our feet dry in the water-rich Province of Zuid-Holland. We will continue the tour to the Deltaworks. More than half of the Netherlands lies below sea level. The Delta Works (Dutch: Deltawerken) is a series of construction projects in the southwest of the Netherlands to protect a large area of land around the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta from the sea. We will visit the Neeltjejans (https://www.neeltjejans.nl/en/) to experience how the Delta works were constructed and see the underwater world. After the visit, the bus will bring the participants back to Delft.
