Accommodation information

Eindhoven has plenty of options for your accommodation in the city centre, and some closer to the seminar venue.

From the city centre, the seminar venue can be reached in approximately 10 minutes by public transport (bus). However, since The Netherlands are the most bicycle friendly country in the world, we would like to point out to you the option to rent a bike for the duration of the seminar. You can make a reservation during the registration process, and we will have your bike ready for you at the venue, at the start of the seminar. The bike ride from the city centre is around 15 minutes (depending on your fitness level and cycling skills!).

We can recommend the following hotels near the seminar venue:

Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven (10 min walk, <5 min bike)
Nearest to the venue, large 4-star hotel, but room availability can be a problem during the seminar due to another event. Be advised to book early. (Visit website)
