Something cool is happening every weekend in the old Bajes from the 22nd of June to the 23rd of July. It is the Maaltuin, a pop-up restaurant. Enjoy a unique evening out this summer, a mere stone’s throw away from our hotel!
The Bijlmerbajes, a former prison, is the newest location of traveling restaurant De Maaltuin. Indulge in a delicious 5-course dinner paired with exquisite wines, whilst discovering the fascinating history of the Netherlands’ first social prison.
This immersive experience takes you on a journey of rehabilitation and redemption for those who had lost their way. But don’t be fooled by the prison’s noble mission: over 100 daring inmates attempted to make a run for it, using anything from linked bedsheets to a billiard table hurled out of a window, and even impersonating officers of the law! The Bijlmerbajes is a place full of captivating stories just waiting to be told.
Come along and enjoy this exciting and unforgettable experience!
