Paushuize (Pope House) is a Renaissance building with Gothic influences and its name comes from the Holland’s only pope: Adrian VI. The religious leader had this house built in 1517, even though he never lived there himself. For centuries it was a governor’s residence and today it has mostly a representative function. The combination of red brick and lighter natural stone, as well as the striking stepped gable, make this historic building noteworthy. A variety of beautifully restored period rooms and splendidly decorated salons makes the building one of the most sought-after venues in the Netherlands for hosting private and business meetings.
The conference dinner will take place in the Janskerk. The Janskerk was founded shortly after 1040 by bishop Bernold of Utrecht. In the Middle Ages, it was one of the city’s five collegiate churches which, together, formed a cluster in the shape of a cross, known as the Utrecht church cross; the others were the Dom, St Salvator’s Church/Salvatorkerk, St Peter’s Church/Pieterskerk and St Mary’s Church/Mariakerk.
In 1580, the public practice of the Catholic faith was prohibited in Utrecht, and the Janskerk lost its function as a collegiate church. As a consequence, statues and altars were removed from the church, and the chancel became the city library and then the university library.
