Gemeentemuseum Den Haag features the world’s largest collection of works by Piet Mondrian.

You can also see how the designers of De Stijl were the forerunners of present-day design. The museum also displays works by top 20th-century artists such as Van Gogh, Monet and Picasso, and has one of the world’s finest and largest collections of Delft Blue china.

Thanks to iKeys we are pleased to offer our conference attendees free yoga sessions during the lunch breaks and poster sessions of ECCB 2016. Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It is a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation. Never did a yoga workout before? Do not worry, the sessions will be adapted to the level of the attendees. People of all ages and fitness levels can do the most basic yoga poses and stretches.

The beachclub can be reached from the conference venue within 10 minutes travel time by tram or taxi. If you chose to walk you may need approximately 30 minutes. Of course you will receive detailed instructions closer to date. Please contact the organizers if you need further assistance.

The dinner at the beach starts at about 20:00 and will end at about 23:30 hours.Schermafbeelding 2016-01-07 om 14.30.19

Beachclub Doen! is virtually located on the sand of the beach. It is an informal setting, with wooden paths and floors with, here and there, the beach sand. The Conference Dinner is of barbeque type. Therefore we strongly recommend casual clothing and shoes. Though we have ordered dry weather, if this does not work out you may have to walk a short distance in rain, from the tram or taxi stop to the beach club and/or back.

Please note that the restaurants along the Scheveningen Boulevard, such as the Beachclub Doen!, cannot be found by a street number. Beachclub Doen! is located at the height of the lighthouse, the needle and the endstop of tram 11.
