    Merweplein 1, 3432 GN, Nieuwegein

    “Evenementencomplex Merwestein” can easily be reached by Public Transport
    from Utrecht Central Railway Station (“Utrecht Centraal Station”). If you can read Dutch/Niederlandisch, then try .

    Just take the high-speed “Sneltram ST” with destination “Nieuwegein-Zuid” for a 20-minute-journey. Step off at tram-stop “Nieuwegein Merwestein”.
    Walk down the stairs on the “greenparks side”. Go right and pass under the viaduct. Immediately turn right again and walk along the sports field and then go straight on. Eventually you’ll see the sports complex on your
    right-hand side.
    Entrance to the complex is on the other side, walk around the complex on
    the left hand side. All this will take you about five minutes from tram-stop to entrance.

    By car: If you can read Dutch see . If not...
    Nieuwegein is about one hours’ drive from both the Belgian and German
    border. As there are numerous ways to get to this sports complex by
    various motorways, please use an online routeplanner and type in both your departing address and “Merweplein 1, Nieuwegein” or postal code “3432 GN”.
    Once again: parking is free!

    The main reason to hold the DSC in Nieuwegein in november is that the
    convention is part of a whole day out for the aviation enthusiast. In the
    afternoon the National Dutch Spotters Championships 2008 (NSK) will be
    held in an adjacent room. At night you can watch and listen to some very
    interesting lectures, including one by a former F-105 Thunderchief "Wild
    Weasel" pilot. For more information see

    In the meantime you can enjoy a cup of coffee and/or a sandwich the
    restaurant while talking with friends and fellow enthusiasts .
