The Stadsgehoorzaal Leiden is an historical location in the city centre of Leiden. This unique building rests on the foundations of the Saint Catharina hospital, which dates back to 1276. The nearby Waalse Kerk is the original chapel of the hospital. The Stadsgehoorzaal was built in the 19th century as a concert hall in an impressive Neo-Renaissance style, rare in the Netherlands. The facade with arcaded patio gives the building its extraordinary allure. From the original interior, the wood paneling and balconies in the Grote Zaal and the entire interior of the Breezaal have been preserved.

Hearing disabilities

The Stadsgehoorzaal has an audiosystem to support those with hearing disabilities. This wireless system uses radiofrequency. You have the opportunity to use a receiver with separate headphones, or – if you have a hearing aid with a so called T-setting – using a loop receiver around your nech. If you wish to use this service, please let us know at the Registration desk.

Dedicated seating area is available in the lecture halls. Please inform the organizers upon registration if you are attending Clostpath in a wheelchair.
