Hotel reservation

The official hotel for the workshop is Hotel Van der Valk which is close to the workshop venue.

If you wish to stay at the hotel you must let Michelle Jonkers (our workshop coordinator) know (unless you already did when you registered).

A confirmation of your hotel reservation will be sent to you approximately 6 weeks before the start of the workshop.

Unless you are covered by funding, you pay upon your departure.

To and from the hotel

Walking: Walking takes ~25 min. From Hotel Van der Valk Leiden it takes about 20 minutes to walk to the Lorentz center. From the hotel you cross the bridge and walk straight ahead. You will cross the busy Plesmanlaan at the traffic lights, and carry on along the Ehrenfestweg (bus lane/cycle path). Turn left into the Einsteinweg passing the disk-shaped building there, after which you turn right into the Niels Bohrweg. From that point you will be able to see the characteristic slanted Oort building on the right hand side of the street and the Snellius building on the left hand side (see pdf map). Here is a google map of the route.

Biking: Biking takes ~8 min. Here is a map of the route. There is a separate bike path all the way to the Lorentz Center. As a workshop attendee you can hire a bike from the Lorentz Center for €5 a day!

By bus: The bus takes ~12 min. There is a bus stop in the front of the hotel and a bus stop here at the Lorentz Center. From the hotel there is a direct bus connection (bus 43) to the Lorentz Center.

Room rates

The room costs €89 per night including breakfast and taxes.
