All events will take place at the CORPUS Congress Centre, address: Willem Einthovenstraat 1, Oegstgeest.
All events will take place on the same floor. The Conference Room will accommodate all three Open groups. You can analyse your game with your opponent or play blitz games with friends in the lounge. Next to the lounge is a balcony to cool off or enjoy a smoke.

- Takes you on a trip through the human body with commentary from a personal audio device (available in eight languages).
- Provides medical information in the form of an exhibition and interactive games.
If you are interested in taking the tour, please note that CORPUS has fixed time slots, which must be booked in advance. You can make a booking via the CORPUS website.
