The town of Zeist, where the conference centre is located, is very close to the city of Utrecht. The city of Utrecht was built around the Dom tower, which you can see from any point in the city, so there is no way you can get lost in the attractive, car-free city centre. Utrecht boasts beautiful canals with extraordinary wharf cellars housing cafés and terraces by the water. Utrecht is home of the largest university of the Netherlands and home of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. As a consequences there are a large number of interesting museums. Besides the Dom tower, Utrecht boasts hundreds of other monuments that each contribute to the special atmosphere in this centuries-old university town.
