Conference Dinner
The Conference Dinner will take place at the Stadshallen, a part of the 13th century complex of halls, which served as a warehouse and a market hall in the Middle Ages and dominated by the Belfry. This impressive building is 83 meters tall and is composed of two connected square brick sections from the 13th century, surmounted by an octagonal lantern tower made of sand-lime brick (1482-1486). Until 1741, a 19-metre high wooden spire crowned the tower. Belfries have symbolic meaning and bear witness to the confidence that cities felt during the late Middle Ages. Besides this they belong to the oldest examples of medieval, civilian, and public architecture. The complex has been recognised as UNESCO World Heritage sites since 1999.

The Stadshallen are accessible for people with visual impairments.
