Due to the predicted extreme heat on Tuesday 19 July 2022, Het Nieuwe Instituut is unfortunately forced to close The Podium that day. From Wednesday 20 July 2022, The Podium will be open to the public again - until 17 August.
The perceived temperature will be a few degrees higher than the already fierce 'official' temperatures of over 35 degrees that meteorologists predict. The institute cannot guarantee the well-being of visitors and staff in such conditions and is temporarily closing The Podium and the stairs leading to it. Visitors who have reserved a time slot for a visit on 19 July will be informed about the possibilities of booking an alternative time.
