Hotel and traveling



More info about the hotel selected for this FEBS course will be added after the applicant selection at Feb 15th 2019.


Traveling towards Science Park

The hotel will not in be the direct vicinity of Sciencepark, where the course lectures will take place. For traveling to Sciencepark, the other LCAM laboratories, the restaurants or back to the hotel we will make use of public transport. Using public transport in Amsterdam requires the so-called OV-cards, you can not pay tickets in the metro/tram or bus directly anymore (note that the train is excluded and has its own special cards)!

At Monday afternoon you’ll receive an OV card that is valid for 96 hrs starting from the moment you will use it for the first time. So when you start traveling on Monday afternoon back to the hotel you can use this card throughout the course. Additional travel info (towards labs and restaurants etc) will follow in the course manual later. In general: Traveling by public transport can be checked by the website  Bus #40 stops in front of the Sciencepark building within 2 minutes walking distance.
