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.
Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we are opened from 12 till 6 PM. Please make a reservation on beforehand via firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Friday, we are only open to women; Saturday and Sunday are mixed. We do not have a men-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).
