Location    

The meeting will be hosted by ASTRON in Dwingeloo, in the province of Drenthe, about 150km north-east of Amsterdam. Situated next to the institute is the old 25m Dwingeloo telescope (now no longer in operation). The institute is located in the middle of a National Park "Dwingelderveld", a very pleasant wooded area with miles of cycle paths through the park (and many Dutch tourists in the summer). It is an excellent, restful location for scientists from around the world to come and work. Apart from the village of Dwingeloo that is within "biking distance", the nearest towns (with a railway station) are Beilen (about 15 km) and Hoogeveen (about 20 km).

Transportation - train

If you arrive by train, you can use the time table of the Dutch railway to plan your journey. Hotel Spier offers a shuttle service (not free) from/to the train stations in Hoogeveen and Beilen. You can arrange this directly with the hotel when you make your reservation (tog@spier.valk.nl ), or contact N. Csonka

If you come to ASTRON first you will need either a "friend" to pick you up or a taxi to take you to the institute. A taxi can be booked by ASTRON (strongly recommended) and in this case it will be waiting for you outside the station: "Taxi Wanningen" is advertised on the taxi. The taxi driver will know the name of the expected guest and have a yellow sign "Radiosterrenwacht" on view in the taxi. The price is 18.50 from Beilen and 28.00 from Hoogeveen. If you need a taxi, please let the institute reception (0521-595100) or Nanuschka Csonka know your arrival time, from where you are arriving and at which station.

Transportation - car

Directions for those arriving by car are available here. Please note that Hotel Spier is situated next to highway A28.
