Hidden in the depths of the former Bijlmer prison, there is a hammam. A long row of old cells is now equipped for the ancient cleansing ritual. Through some elegant interventions, these cells have now been transformed into steam- and sauna cabins, scrub rooms, and silent spaces. Behind these heavy prison doors, you will have the chance to completely come back to your senses, through steaming, sweating, scrubbing, and meditating. Come to the hammam for a thorough cleansing of both body and spirit.
We are open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12-18h. Please make a reservation on beforehand via firstname.lastname@example.org.
All three days are mixed. We do not have a men or women-only day, but you can rent out the entire hammam starting from 4 people. We advise you not to take a shower, or only shortly, before you will visit the hammam, and especially not to use any shower gels.
The hammam is part of the Tijdelijk Museum (Temporary Museum).
