On Saturday 27 August, we end the LIMES 2022 congress with a fantastic dinner at a unique location in Nijmegen: Restaurant De Hemel, in St. John’s Commandry.
Situated in the heart of Nijmegen, the St. John’s Commandry is a monumental building which was built over 800 years ago, to give travelling pelgrims a place to rest and regain their strength. The history started in 1196 when a hospital was built on this site. In 1214, the building was offered to the Order of Saint John. In 1495, the monastery had 11 beds, of which 9 were intended for monks and staff. Therefore, the hospital was probably rather small at that time. However, the attic contained a huge stock of hops. That means that beer was probably already brewed within these walls 500 years ago! Read more about the history here.
The evening starts at 18.30 with welcome drinks followed by a delicious dinner buffet including vegetarian options. Dinks are included till 22.00 hours and the restaurant is famous for its home-brewed beers! After dinner we open the dancefloor and party on!
Come join us for dinner, drinks and dance!
