How far are you willing to go for the perfect location? Considering travel time, we’re willing to travel up to 45 minutes* on average. Do you have guests travelling through Schiphol? Or do you just want to stay close to the capital and the office? We visited five special meeting & event venues close to Schiphol Airport and Amsterdam!


Claus in Hoofddorp is perhaps the most famous event venue in the Netherlands, with a name that has been synonymous with experience for decades. Claus, together with Papa’s Beach House and the fully renewed 4-star Courtyard by Marriott, together form the Claus Park Collection group. These three locations can be combined and together offer 15 meeting rooms, 4 great restaurants, 260 hotel rooms and everything you need for a small or large business event – centrally located in the green Haarlemmermeerse Bos. At Claus, you always benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience in organizing events they have gained over the years!


Looking for a location with virtually unlimited possibilities for events, right in the middle of the Randstad? Event venue Hangaar2 certainly has all the space you need for any type of event! In this hangar of 2,450 m2, at former military airport Valkenburg in Katwijk, you can create the most fantastic events. And if you want to offer your guests an unforgettable experience, you can combine Hangaar2 with the outdoor area, including the platforms of the airport, or with the Theater Hangaar. This theatre building was built for Soldaat van Oranje – De Musical. With the 360-degree rotating grandstand and 180-degree projection screens, this is the perfect location to convey your message with conviction!


Surprise your guests with an event with a culinary etouch in the intimate setting of Landgoed Groenendaal (Groenendaal Estate)! This historic coach house is located in the middle of the Groenendaal forest in Heemstede. An oasis of peace and privacy, just a 15-minute drive from Schiphol Airport and about 25 minutes from Amsterdam. The versatile location combines classic allure with a contemporary décor, in which nostalgic elements blend together with modern design in a playful way. With three multifunctional rooms, a light conservatory and a beautiful forest garden, Langoed Groenendaal is suitable for groups of 2 to 300 people. Ideal for a meeting, private dining, seminars, anniversaries or a spectacular staff party!


Whether it’s a relationship event or a team building day for employees, your group is guaranteed to bond at Forteiland IJmuiden, because this spectacular location is completely sealed off from the outside world! The island is located in the mouth of the North Sea Canal near IJmuiden, but still near Amsterdam. On the island itself, you can make your way to the impressive plenary room (for up to 600 guests) through mysteriously illuminated corridors. And with over 40 atmospheric subspaces, there’s plenty of room for grand events. Additionally, PBN is a specialist in organizing (teambuilding) activities and helps create the ultimate event!


Combine business and pleasure with a meeting or event by the sea! Parnassia aan Zee (Parnassia by the Sea) is situated in an amazingly beautiful spot in National Park Zuid-Kennemerland, right between the dunes and directly on the sandy beach of Bloemendaal. The beach pavilion has a bustling beach vibe and a sunny terrace 365 days a year, and also offers a great place for business visitors to retreat in peace. Meeting here is a blast: in the five modern and attractively decorated meeting rooms, you’ll have a beautiful view of the sea. And from the meeting room ‘Duin’ (Dune) you step right into the sand!
