Useful information:

The venue
De Remise in The Hague, a unique venue located in a historic tram depot from 1906. The venue is wheelchair friendly: providing access through an elevator and including accessible toilets. Free WiFi will be available throughout the venue.

How to get there
De Remise can be easily reached both by public transport and by car. Please navigate to "Ter Borchstraat 7, Den Haag".

By public transport:
Due to an unfortunate train crash last week between Schiphol and The Hague, the train service from Schiphol to The Hague Central station will be disrupted the coming weeks. Our suggestion for the most comfortable detour (e.g. when travelling with luggage) would be to travel via Rotterdam (~1h):

-From Schiphol, take the NS Intercity Direct to Rotterdam (please note that you will need to buy a supplement ticket for this line)
-From Rotterdam , take any train to The Hague Central
Other options would include transferring from the train to a bus and will probably take longer.

Tramlines 9, 11 and 12 stop at 'Wouwermanstraat'. From there, you'll see the venue just accross the street.

By car:
For the MEDIATOR Final Event, you are welcome to park your car on the premises. The venue has two charging stations for electric vehicles.
