The Dutch Evening will be held in the Winkel van Sinkel, the perfect venue for the Congress Dinner Party! Set in the very heart of Utrecht along the Oudegracht canal, this 19th centrury monumental building combines culture with Dutch hospitality.
The Winkel van Sinkel was the first department store in the Netherlands. In 1837 Anton Sinkel converted this grand canal house into a ‘shopping palace’ where you could buy almost everything, from “baskets with figs, hair pomade, bottles of orangeade, hats and caps and lady’s corsets, licorice and pills…. “. The store was famous throughout the Netherlands and lasted more than fifty years. In 1898 a bank took up residence for over a century. Nowadays Winkel van Sinkel is a grand café and restaurant during the day and transforms into a club at night.
