The programme is set up in such a way that the partners will explore the city of Amsterdam in a proactive way. We consider it important to include activities which aim at increasing the partners' physical condition. Furthermore we want to make them aware of the society they live in and their ancestors, and therefore we chose a specific exhibition at the Tropenmuseum.
We kindly ask the guests to sign in at the Host desk for these activities always on the day before until 8 pm. The guests will get the schedule of the upcoming day right away. This will help us to organise the programme and make the day an unforgettable one. Please keep in mind that the Conservatorium Hotel is aware that short-term changes will still be possible. That means that in case a guest decides to be part of the organised tour even though he or she did not sign up prior to the deadline we will do our best to include that guest in the programme.
Furthermore, the programmes are set up in a manner that the children can always join. On Thursday and Sunday there will not be a specially planned leisure programme for the guests nor for their partners and/or children.

10:00 – Departure for excursion

Included are bikes for children, a map of Amsterdam and a guide on what to do in case of emergency. (w...
