My home address for lectures (see red arrow below):

Map of Haarlemmermeerstraat, Amsterdam. Please note this tricky situation: there is another street in town that sounds almost the same: Haarlemmerstraat. Taxi drivers may take you to the wrong one - so please be specific. You need to go to my Haarlemmermeerstraat.

How to get there :

- by car: ring road exit S 106 towards the centre, then 1st to the right (paid parking)

- by trams 1 and 17; exit at Surinameplein

- by tram 2; exit Hoofddorpplein.

From the museum square or Leidseplein in the center it takes about a 10-minute tram ride to my home.
