WineConf is the Wine Project's annual conference, where members of the Wine community, the broader Free Software community and interested users meet up over food and beverages. We traditionally also have a number of talks by attendees, as well as some formal and informal discussions about anything vaguely Wine related. This year, we will also be celebrating the Wine Project's 25th anniversary.

By Plane:

The airport with the best connection to The Hague is Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS). A possible alternative is Rotterdam The Hague Airport (RTM). There's an approximately 30 minute direct train connection from "Schiphol Airport" to "Den Haag Centraal" (The Hague Central Station) for €8,50. It's about a 10 minute (approximately 1 km) walk from the train station to the hotel, but a taxicab or public transport are options as well.

By Train:

For attendees travelling from France, Belgium or Germany, the high-speed Thalys may be an option.

By Road:

The Hague is well connected by road, but please be aware that paid parking is in effect in practically the entire city centre.

Within The Hague:

The Hague has a decent public transport system, as well as plenty of taxicab providers.

Travel sponsorship

The Wine Development Fund will sponsor WineConf attendance for contributors to Wine that would not otherwise be able to attend. Contact Jeremy White to request a sponsorship. If instead you'd like to make a donation to the Wine Development Fund, we'll gladly accept those as well.


The Hague has a decent number of opportunities for tourism; https://denhaag.com/en has some pointers.


Still largely TBD. In case of sufficient interest there will likely be a Friday afternoon programme, so it may be worth planning to arrive Friday morning rather than Friday evening. If you'd like to propose a talk, send an e-mail to the [email protected] mailing list. Breakfast at the hotel is open from 7:00 until 12:00, and we have the conference room from 9:00 until 17:00.
