This and the presence of a few internationally famous hotels makes Noordwijk a very popular convention hotspot with more than a 1000 events a year. Often such conventions or seminars are combined with outdoor activities for which Noordwijk offers a wide variety of possibilities. In 2017 Noordwijk was crowned ‘European City of Sport’.
The main hotels in Noordwijk like Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin, Golden Tulip, Alexander Hotel, Radisson Blu Palace Hotel and Hotel van Oranje are located at about 3 to 5 minutes walking distance from Klooster.
The Old Church of Jerome is a gothic cruciform church, named after the 8th century Scottish missionary and martyr Jerome. He lived and died (beheaded by the Vikings) in Noordwijk and founded the first (wooden) church. The present stone Church was build in the 12th century and because of a fire partially rebuild in 1450.
Jerome was worshipped as a martyr and so Noordwijk became a place of pilgrimage. This brought a wealth which enabled the local church authority’s to pay off the Spanish occupiers in the Netherlands who threatened to burn the building down. The Spaniards were driven out of the country eventually and shortly after also the Roman Catholics (1573) out of the Old Church of Jerome. The Protestants who took over still use the church until this day.
Nevertheless during weekdays this impressive and historic building can be used for events.
