The village of Noordwijk is ideally positioned between Amsterdam and The Hague, both approx 30 minutes away. The cities offer a wide range of museums, shops, bars and restaurants. Even closer are Leiden and Haarlem, smaller in size but still with a vibrant city centre, worth a visit. Noordwijk also offers a unique experience – Space Expo is based next to the European Space Agency's research center. At Space Expo you can experience the history and future of space odysseys. The museum Oud Noordwijk shows you the local life and customs from the early 20th century while museum Veldzicht is dedicated to the growth of herbs in earlier centuries.
Organisers have some exciting ideas for other activities, possibilities are hot tubs on the beach, decorated with palm trees and cocktails. Also SUP and wave surfing will be available. There will not be a shortage of food and drink at the organised parties as well as on other days. More details will be published soon.
This is an event not to be missed! Register now and benefit from a low entry fee until 31 January 2017 – www.hobieworlds.com
