A day in… Noordwijk

Noordwijk is a municipality in the province of Zuid-Holland and is beautifully located at the beach. Noordwijk may not be the biggest city, but Noordwijk is known as Holland’s second conference city. Whether you are planning your meeting here or just want to explore the city, spending the day in Noordwijk gives you a lot of business and leisure options.


Noordwijk is also known as the beach of Amsterdam
13 km of coast line
Capacity largest auditorium: 1,100 pax

Getting there & getting around
Noordwijk is easy to reach by car, plane or public transportation. Big cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague are close at hand. So too are Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (25 km) and Rotterdam The Hague Airport (40 km).

Noordwijk has all the congress facilities of a big city. But on a small scale. In Noordwijk, it doesn’t take your guests long to get from A to B. Unlike big cities, everything you need is within walking distance, which is ideal when your conference covers several locations or if your guests are staying in different hotels. Accommodating a citywide conference is no problem at all for Noordwijk.

Meeting and business venues 
Noordwijk offers a wide variety of meeting venues, hotels and inspirational conference rooms. Because Noordwijk is a friendly seaside resort with a warm atmosphere, your guests are sure to feel at home.

In the summer Vesper Hotel opened its doors in Noordwijk. This boutique hotel is all about mixing business with pleasure.

Staying in Noordwijk? You might want to consider the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin or Hotels van Oranje. They are both strategically located and well-known for their international guests like President Obama and Xi Jinping. If you are looking for a venue for a large group of people (up to 1,100 pax) you could have your meeting at Hotel NH Noordwijk Conference Centre Leeuwenhorst.

After your meeting
Noordwijk is a great place to spend a day. They have a broad range of museums, shopping areas, restaurants and sights.

Casual or Michelin star restaurant? Beach vibe or intimate setting? Noordwijk has it all. Here are a few of my suggestions:

Beachclub O. – beach / music / relax
Chatillon – hotel / creative / organic
Latour – Michelin star / wines / classic
Villa de Duinen – French / classic / business meeting

The presidential hospitality of Hotels van Oranje is certainly not unknown in the world. Many Kings, Presidents and CEO’s have stayed at Hotels van Oranje in the past and in the present.

Before the Nuclear Security Summit took off in March 2014, Hotels van Oranje hosted the Sino-Dutch Economic Forum. Special guests: King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima, but also Chinese President Mr. Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan. The Chinese delegation stayed at the Hotels van Oranje during the entire NSS. While Mr. Xi Jinping attended the summit, his wife visited the beautiful Keukenhof. They really appreciated that the hotel showed flexibility and were able to create 24 suites for their delegation. And that is one of the specialties of Hotels van Oranje, they have the capacity of a conference hotel, but they keep holding on to the charm of a boutique hotel.Hotels van Oranje

During the last few years the Hotels van Oranje have invested tremendously in the modernization of all hotel facilities. Most recently all the hotel rooms in Hotel Oranje have been completely renewed. At the beginning of 2014 the Superior Deluxe rooms were delivered including completely renovated bathrooms.  The Hotels van Oranje have also created 4 new, contemporary Executive Suites! These suites have a staggering dimension of 60 m2 and are an oasis of pure luxury. Next to the hotel rooms also the stylish Imperial Bar, Aqua Sauna Oranje, Beauty Oranje, meeting rooms and the hotel lobby are renewed.

Plan some breaks during or after your meeting and combine it with great activities such as power kiting, coast rafting, beach golf or perhaps even tug of war with or against your management team! But how about designing and making your own sand sculpture, discover the flower bulb area with a balanced Segway tour or an unforgettable Vespa lifestyle experience! And at night you will be dancing it off in the Hotels van Oranje very own Beachclub O. How cool is that?
