Accomodations for DFT 2019

Leiden is conveniently located between ESTEC and TU Delft and is served by excellent public transportation. However, on the 3rd of October Leiden Town will celebrate the Ontzet. During this traditional and very popular Festival the city center is turned into one gigantic festival terrain and huge crowds will be drawn into the city on the 2nd and 3rd of October. Although this may be attractive, the hotels rates are expected to be higher and accommodation difficult to find. Alternative accommodation can be found both in Noordwijk close to ESTEC or in Delft close to TU Delft. Noordwik is more convenient for getting to ESTEC. Shuttles from/to main Noordwijk Hotels and ESTEC are available for a price.

Hotel bookings are dealt with by the ESTEC Travel Office (ATPI). The list of hotels and rates are available for download HERE. Kindly note these rates are only available when booked via ATPI. For the booking of a hotel room via ATPI a booking fee will be applied.

Please send them an e-mail in order to make your booking,
