Evening programme, 18:30-22:30

Brasserie Zalmhuis
Schaardijk 396
2909 LA Capelle aan den IJssel


On a beautiful spot at the foot of the Van Brienenoord Bridge, the Zalmhuis offers an incredible view over the Nieuwe Maas river. Brasserie Zalmhuis is inspired by classic French Art Nouveau, and the menu is complemented by modern Mediterranean trends. The atmosphere is informal and the service is smooth and friendly.

Dinner location
We start our evening with a reception in the restaurant, followed by dinner in the same restaurant.

Organised bus transportation
Zalmhuis restaurant is not located in the city centre. Therefore, going by public transport can be a challenge. This is why we recommend that you meet us by the campus entrance to take the RSM shuttle bus that will go straight to the Zalmhuis restaurant. 

The buses will leave campus directly after the activities end at 18:00. If you miss this bus, there will be another bus at 19:00, but you'll miss the drinks reception. After the dinner busses will leave Zalmhuis at 22:30 and 23:30, stopping at campus and Blaak station. 

By public transport
The restaurant is not on a public transport route, so it’s easiest to meet us by the campus entrance for the shuttle bus that will go straight there. We have arranged shuttle buses back to campus and to the city centre after dinner.

You can also use the public transport route planner or get in touch for extra advice and support.

Limited parking is available in front of the restaurant and is free of charge.
