We are planning the following technical visits during the congress.
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, known informally as Schiphol Airport, is the main international airport in the Netherlands. It is located 9 kilometres southwest of Amsterdam, in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer in the province of North Holland.
Port of Rotterdam
The Port of Rotterdam is the largest seaport in Europe and the world’s largest seaport outside of the East.
The Afsluitdijk has protected the Netherlands against the force of water for almost 90 years.
In the years ahead, Rijkswaterstaat and De Nieuwe Afsluitdijk will prepare the dam for the future.
European Space Agency (ESA)
ESA has sites in several European countries, but the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, is the largest. ESTEC is our technical heart – the incubator of the European space effort – where most ESA projects are born and where they are guided through the various phases of development.
World Heritage Kinderdijk
Dive into a world of windmills, water and willpower. The canals, mills and pumping stations of Kinderdijk have kept our feet dry for over 700 years. Board the tour boat, step inside the museum mills and discover the personal stories of the millers.
The Maeslant Barrier is located in the Nieuwe Waterweg near Hook of Holland and was built between 1991 and 1997. The structure is automatically operated and, together with the Hartel Barrier and the expanded Rozenburg dyke, forms the Europoort Barrier. The Maeslant Barrier is a forward flood surge barrier, which means that it receives the full brunt of flooding from the sea, and so protects the residents of the province of Zuid-Holland.
