After receiving positive feedback regarding the last Valentine tournament, the Sunday brunch will be at Casa400 again - near Amstel station. For those who want there will be a cultural activity in Amsterdam afterwards. We will keep you updated about this during the coming months.

Upstream swimmer and architect Emiel Lamers provides architecture tours ( This year he will organize an interesting tour again specifically for the participants of the Valentine tournament. The tour will take place after brunch.

We meet at 13:30 at Amsterdam Central Station and we’ll be guided through a nearby area until about 15:00. The tour will end with coffee/tea/cake (at own account) at a special new location in the city!

Organizer Maarten Prot will take the metro from Hotel Casa. You can join him to CS from there.
