16.00 h end of meeting
You are advised to come the Roeterseiland by public transport. The subway (Metro) is the easiest. Take the subway from Amsterdam Central railway station: all subways stop at Weesperplein (3rd stop). Take exit Roeterstraat, turn right (Valkenierstraat), at the end of this street you are facing the Roetereiland complex, then use the map (above).
