Scheltema Leiden, an old blanket factory dating back to the 19th century, is intimately connected with the history of the city of Leiden. By making our building sustainable and equipping it with excellent audiovisual resources, we have created a unique location for your meeting.

Our large Theatre has a plenary capacity of 250 seated visitors. We welcome visitors in our Foyer, where a cup of coffee is served after registration. Because of the wide range of rooms, the group can easily be divided into 4 or 5 subgroups.

We spare organizations from all peripheral matters so that an optimal focus is created for the content of the meeting. Together with our partners in Leiden, we provide a delicious cup of coffee or tea, a customised lunch and a drink afterwards. Would you like to dine with the group on location after the meeting? We’ll arrange it!

Scheltema Leiden is within easy reach by bike, car, bus or train. Our location is a stone’s throw from the Lammermarkt parking lot, and a less than ten-minute walk from Leiden Central Station.

The team of Scheltema Leiden has extensive experience with facilitating a seminar. In recent years, many companies have gone before you. In short, together we’ll be happy to organise a congress that matches all your needs.
