In the Western docklands of Amsterdam lies a green oasis called Ruigoord. The village is a cultural free state, where artists, craftsmen and free-thinkers escape the city to work on their art or to simply to enjoy the feeling of freedom.
On most Saturdays you can dance in the Church until the sun comes up. On most Sundays the Church is open for some nice and easy (live) music, poetry and homemade food. A few times a year, you can experience one of the magical festivals of Ruigoord. When visiting, please respect it’s residents and keep the village clean and safe! Check out the calendar to see what’s happening! www.ruigoord.nl
Getting there by Public Transport: Go to Sloterdijk Station and take bus 82 (direction IJmuiden). The journey from Sloterdijk takes about 15 minutes.
Rainy day? Enjoy a delicious indoor day out at the Foodhallen! The Foodhallen opened in a newly renovated tram depot in October 2014. The concept was inspired by indoor food markets like the Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid and Borough Market in London. Wander around the large loft‐like space and discover the very best culinary Amsterdam has to offer.
Amsterdam Roest is one of the city’s fairly new places that we really love and enjoy. Roest combines an historical industrial atmosphere with a very creative and relaxing ambiance. Roest offers you a city beach, a very nice bar and café and lots of things to do, see and experience. Being a cultural sanctuary, you will be able to enjoy refreshing new concepts of theatre, art, film and lots of music. When you visit Roest on a Friday or Saturday night, you might want to put on your dancing shoes! Check out what’s happening on www.amsterdamroest.nl
