ROEF Expedition

03.09.22 | 5:00 – 11:00 p.m.

Would you like to join us on an expedition along the six coolest roofs in Amsterdam Center and East? With a ROEF expedition ticket you are free to hop from roof to roof. On each roof you’ll find a high quality program: from live music and karaoke to silent disco. In between, you will find inspiration in spoken word, a sustainable pub quiz, tastings and more. Not to mention the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views. There’s no set route, so get out there and enjoy. We advise to come by bike, but you can also go by foot.

Capital C

This location is worth a (regular) visit. On the spot where diamonds were once traded, you will now find a creative hub with an impressive skylight as a roof. This dome is not only beautiful, but also has integrated solar cells that generate energy and it provides the perfect temperature year round. The green roof next to it acts as a rainwater buffer and increases biodiversity, filters particulates from the air and traps CO2.

During the expedition, the Brazilian rhythm of Roda Da Holanda makes Capital C sparkle. At Roda da Holanda you will be swept away by the exhilarating rhythms and melancholic sounds of the samba. Live music in an intimate setting: the musicians sit at a table and the audience gathers around them. Immerse yourself in dancing, laughing, singing, whatever. Before you know it you are in the middle of the music… and you are the music.

ZOKU

Zoku is one of the most beautiful rooftops in the city and should not be missed at the ROEF Expedition. On the top floor of the building you will find the well-known greenhouse full of plants with green roof terraces on both sides. One roof terrace further (behind the relaxed café) you will be face to face with the famous Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge).

Volkshotel Badplaats

Atop the ever-bustling Volkshotel, everything is zen. Hot tubs and saunas are waiting for you. Usually only within reach of hotel guests and incubator fortune tellers, but now also for everyone on ROEF expedition. With a nice view, bar and changing room. So don’t forget your swimwear. From the hot tub or from the bar you can watch a literary program hosted by local hero Benjamin Fro who invites his poet friends. More about that later!

The Student Hotel (City)

At The Student Hotel you have a far-reaching view. As part of the ROEF expedition you can go up to the 13th(!) floor. The co-working space has a balcony that runs (almost) all the way around. Don’t let the name fool you: besides being a hotel, The Student Hotel is also a true hub for co-living and co-working for creatives, students, locals and travelers.

The fabulous Erin Tasmania and friends will host a magnificent skyhigh karaoke session. Not to be missed.

GAPP

GAPP is the green beer garden on the roof of Hotel Casa, near Amstel Station and the Ringdijk. High above the bustling city, you really have a beautiful view, complemented by a special beer list that is for a lack of a better word extra special. Either way, take all your friends to the greenery on the 8th floor. Drinks, comfort food… what more could you want?

Well for example… live music? Sure. Amsterdam Music Project has your back and the Shaggy Greys will perform on the rooftop.

Spaces Amstel

That Spaces offers (co)working at a high level is well known, but did you know that the building near the Amstel has a roof terrace waiting for you? Walk through the bright atrium (hello, roof with solar panels!) to the elevators and get on your feet. View, check. Let’s dance.

At Spaces Amstel a DJ set suddenly appears during the ROEF expedition and we go wild in the silent disco.
