This year's Design by Fire Conference will be hosted in the lecture hall of the Spoorwegmuseum — the Dutch National Railway Museum.
The 19th century station on Maliebaan has been fully restored to its former glory. Here you feel like the first passenger in a recently completed station in 1874. A lavishly painted booking hall with chandeliers, a 1st and 2nd class waiting room, a luxury dining room and even toilets with a 19th century feel show you how the station was once the gateway to the world.
