ProDemos temporarily cancels all tours due to the coronavirus

As of Sunday the 15th of March, measures are in place in the Netherlands to tackle the spread of the coronavirus. In the following months the Government has adjusted it’s corona-related measures every few weeks.  You can find the latest update here.

As a result of this measure, ProDemos unfortunately has had to cancel all tours starting from Friday the 13th of March. We will do this until the 30th of June 2020. In week 21 (19th of May) we will decide whether we’ll have to extend this period.

The costs for tickets and group arrangements will be refunded. ProDemos will personally contact everyone who has booked a (group)tour within the indicated period.

Visitor centre closed

As of Saturday the 14th of March, the Visitor Centre of ProDemos at Hofweg 1 will be closed for visitors until further notice.

House of Representatives, Senate and Hall of Knights

The House of Representatives, the Senate and the basement of the Hall of Knights (where an exhibit is held on the history of Prinsjesdag) will also be temporarily closed due to the measures by the Dutch Government.
