Join us for a weekend in The Netherlands for A Few Days Like No Others – 13-15 April 2018.
We propose a shared house in Wassenaar, opposite to the house of our king. We invite you to arrive in the afternoon on Friday and our program will start in the evening with a nice dinner in the city of Leiden and going out for the movies in an Art Deco cinema. It will also give you an opportunity to see the beautiful city of Leiden by night. Leiden is 15 minutes away by car from Wassenaar.
The next day, we will visit the Louwman museum which has the oldest private collection of cars in the world. We will have a special guided tour focusing on the Art Deco cars and affiches of the 1920s and 1930s. This museum is located close by the shared house.
In the afternoon you can take it easy and get ready for our special 1920s /1930s evening in a beautiful Art Deco church with live music, performance and dance. Dress code: evening attire 1920s/1930s. Or, if you have a great amount of energy, we have a few nice addresses of Art Deco buildings in The Hague before you join the party.
On Sunday, after a nice sleep in, we will visit the legacy of the architect Dudok in Hilversum. The ‘Raadhuis’ is one of the most famous buildings in The Netherlands of Dudok, which we will visit during a guided tour. The guided tours need a minimum of 8 people. The guided tours will be given in English.
We would like to reserve the shared house on Friday and Saturday evening. Let us know if you also wish to stay for the Sunday evening.
The highlight of our weekend:
