On the shores of the North Sea, surrounded by flower fields, dunes and beaches lies Noordwijk. Once a small fishing village, Noordwijk is now one of the top locations in Holland for meetings and conferences. I have been on site inspection to the coastal town to check out the meeting facilities for you.
Noordwijk is a warm and friendly seaside resort. It is a lively backdrop for hosting business events such as meetings, incentives and conventions. Combining the charms of a holiday destination with the professionality of a business town, Noordwijk is an attractive location for large and small corporate events.
Noordwijk is reigned by a strong team spirirt. The cooperation between local businesses is exemplary. The big congress hotels are within walking distance of each other offer the perfect infrastructure for any business meeting or conference in Noordwijk. The small town has hosted NATO meetings, international fund-raising congresses and Pricewaterhouse Cooper Global conferences. Hotels, restaurants, shops and the local government work together to provide meeting delegates the best possible hospitality. The Dutch national football team chooses Noordwijk as a home base in preparing for important international games. This spirit makes Noordwijk a perfect destination for teambuilding. The town and the beach offer various group activities that will build trust and commitment among employees.
Due to its central location, Noordwijk is easily accessible via common modes of transport. Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport are less than a 30 minute-drive away and The Hague, Leiden and Rotterdam Airport are close.
Whether you prefer a 5* hotel or a more casual accommodation, Noordwijk has it all. Here are my favourite places.
Noordwijk has room for numerous great teambuilding activities. Here are my favourites:
Building sand sculptures: it requires patience and a cam hand to build a work of art
Float building: play Robinson Crusoe and work as a team to get a functional float on the water
Powerkiten: there is no more impressive way to experience the winds of the North Sea
Life Rescue on the North Sea: learn to trust and help each other on this life saving adventure
After your meeting
If you have time left after your meeting I recommend you to enjoy the beautiful nature Noordwijk is blessed with. The cosy coastal town is also know as the flower seaside resort because of its closeness to the famous flower fields and the annual Flower Parade. Stretching over 13 kilometres, the beach at Noordwijk offers peace and quiet as well as a host of outdoor pursuits, ranging from cycling the dunes to all sorts of water sports. Noordwijk has been awarded the Blue Flag eco-label of quality many times and is still listed as such.
