31st of May – 3rd of June 2018
Organised by the Nederlandse Porsche Club
The Dutch Porsche Club (NPC) is proud to be organising the Porsche Parade Europe in 2018 from Thursday, 31st of May to Sunday, 3rd of June 2018. We are delighted to welcome you to our beautiful country of water, polders, dunes and sun!
During the event, we would like to provide an overview of Dutch diversity, in terms of the economy and also natural beauty. We will present a programme that offers a warm welcome and also provides a great introduction to our country.
Even though our country is very densely populated, there is enough space to live well. Eighteen per cent of our country is below sea level, and we are protected from the water by dunes. Directly behind these dunes on the north coast, we have the majestic Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin in Noordwijk aan Zee. The entire hotel is at your disposal during the PPE 2018 and various types of rooms can be booked.
You will be expected on Thursday, 31st of May 2018 between 2.30pm and 5.30pm in Noordwijk. After you have checked in, aperitifs will be served at 6pm, followed by the welcome dinner at 7pm in one of the Huis ter Duin dining rooms. After dinner, as always during the Porsche Parade Europe, the bar in the hotel lounge will be opened. This bar features a stunning terrace, which we can use if the weather is suitable. Entertainment will be provided during our meal and drinks afterwards.
Enthusiasts may join a morning tour through the surrounding area with lunch in Rotterdam at The Hague airport. Those who do not participate and who stay in Noordwijk will be invited to join us for lunch in Rotterdam between noon and 2pm. After lunch, you will return to Noordwijk where, until 5pm, there will be time to relax and get ready for the gala dinner that evening in Amsterdam.
At 5pm we will head for Amsterdam by bus. Once there, we will board boats to tour Amsterdam's canals and make our way to a surprise, historic location in Amsterdam for our gala dinner. After dinner, the buses will take us back to Noordwijk, where the bar will be open.
After breakfast we will begin our road tour to the 'new land' (the polders). Our ultimate destination is the city of Almere, built on the seabed of the drained Zuiderzee. This is a new city in the vicinity of Amsterdam, with around 200,000 residents. The city has a modern layout and offers plenty of space and natural areas for those who wish to get away from the big city. The Porsche Parade will take place in Almere and journey right through the centre, creating a huge celebration along the way! Prior to the parade, there will be a Concours d’Elégance and lunch will be provided by the city of Almere, featuring typical Dutch delicacies. After the parade, we will leave in a convoy and head to Noordwijk aan Zee.
At 6 pm everyone is invited to the Tappenbeck foyer at the Hotel Huis ter Duin for an aperitif.
Our meal will commence at 7pm. A variety of Dutch culinary surprises will be served and the meal will be accompanied by a varied entertainment programme. And the bar will of course be reopened for us at 10pm.
All good things must come to an end and this also applies to the Porsche Parade Europe 2018. After breakfast, we will say our goodbyes following an event we hope will have been a huge success.
