ROEF 2021 ▵ 27+28 augustus

Up in the sky: ROEF takes you there!

The end of August is the perfect time to broaden your horizon during ROEF 2021. Expect entertainment, gezelligheid and inspiration at a high level. You could go from roof to roof during the expedition, come and dance on the roof of NEMO, or watch an IDFA documentary with a backdrop of Amsterdam in the open air.

Despite the current measures, we are hopeful ROEF can happen at the end of August so we will continue with the organization. If the measurements remain in place or become more strict, ROEF will unfortunately be canceled this year and ticket holders will of course get their money back.

About ROEF

​​ROEF showcases the city’s highest potential, because roofs in proper use offer opportunities for climate adaptation, sustainable energy and crowds in the city. Did you know that the undeveloped Amsterdam roof landscape is no less than 12 km² in size? That is more than 25 times the size of the Vondelpark. The future of the Amsterdam roof landscape according to ROEF? The largest public rooftop park in the Netherlands, where you can walk from roof, to roof, to roof via air bridges! Will you join us?
