The Hague is easy to reach from anywhere in the world. It is located in one of the best regions in Europe with easy access to two international airports and train stations. The system of public transport makes it easy to find your way around the city. However, during our conference you might encounter some traveling delay because of traffic diversions.

While the entire public transport network functions remarkably well, an alternative worth considering is walking to your destination within the town. A stroll through one of the sunniest Dutch cities, whether it is alongside the coast or next to the beautiful historic buildings in the centre of The Hague, should definitely be taken into consideration.
