The Gothic St. John's Church (also called the 'Saint John of Maastricht') is located next to the Servaasbasiliek at the striking Vrijthof in Maastricht and was originally intended as a parish church for the Chapter of Saint Servatius, so that the basilica would be relieved as a pilgrimage place. The Red Tower is a landmark on the skyline of Maastricht. With its location in the heart of the city, the St. John's church is very popular and suitable for many purposes.

The Congress Dinner will take place at Château Neercanne, on Saturday 6 May 2017.
In the magnificent Jekerdal valley, adjacent to the Belgian border, is Château Neercanne, the only terraced castle in the Benelux. The beautiful Baroque gardens of the 17th century castle are divided over four levels, all of them UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The highest terrace offers a wonderful view of the gardens and the magnificent valley. Château Neercanne has a rich cultural and culinary tradition. The unique wine cellars in the marl caves, where the Maastricht Treaty on the European Union was signed, form an unparalleled setting for a dinner.
The congress dinner will be a high quality culinary discovery through the Château and caves where you can taste several dishes made from local products.
Along with a map, you will walk through the caves, where the dinner is served at several places. A walking dinner enables you to easily meet and talk with your colleagues! The outside terrace will provide fabulous views on the surroundings.
