Henk Helmantel – May 31

Our Cook

Outing to Henk Helmantel – May 31, 2013

International Cafe @ Facebook

To all international students,

We would like to invite you to a very special event of International Café on Friday May 31, 2013, yes a Friday! Every year we try to fit in an excursion to visit one of the best known Dutch painters of our time, Henk Helmantel, to see his home and the exhibition of his marvelous realistic paintings in Westeremden. You can get an idea of his work on his website, but to see it up close and to visit his amazing home (a parsonage restored to its medieval state) and to walk around in his spacious garden is so much better! This is definitely a trip you should make before you leave the Groningen area.

As usual there will be a meal of soup, salad, and bread with tea, coffee and cake.
The total cost of the exhibition and the meal will be 5 euros pp.


To join us, please sign up below, or through facebook, and meet us at 15:40 at the train station in Groningen: the train leaves at 15:48, PLEASE BE ON TIME! Buy a train ticket to Stedum (this costs 5 euros. If you have discount it is less.) Go to Track 1a — Direction Delfzijl . Hans and Paul will meet you there.
The train will arrive in Stedum at 14:12, and if the weather is good we will walk 2 kilometers to Westeremden (if it is raining heavily we will try to organize other transportation). Wear comfortable shoes!
We expect to return to Groningen by 20:00 o’clock so you will have time to study or enjoy the rest of your Friday evening!


If you have to work until later on Friday afternoon but you do want to come, let us know. You can take a later train and we can send someone to meet you in Stedum. (Not later than 6 o’clock please.)
You can also arrange your own transportation, the address: Abt Emopad 2, Westeremden.


IMPORTANT: If you have signed up but for some reason are not able to come will you please let us know as soon as you can so that we know how much food will be needed!

We hope to see you again, and your friends are very welcome!
