This summer, we’re hard at work on the regeneration of Amsterdam Zuid station. From 4 to 15 August, the A10 Zuid will be closed in the direction of Utrecht for eight days, because we’ll be moving two roof sections for the new Brittenpassage into position. This will cause disruption, but there’ll also be entertainment and relaxation to make up for it. Based at our temporary information centre, the Zuidas Zomer Keet in Mahlerplein, there’ll be plenty to experience for young and old over a three-week period. Below is just a selection of the (free) activities.
What is there to do?
A selection of the activities:
Spectacle from the platform
In August, we’re digging up around 100 m of the A10. We’ll show you the hole in the motorway from close-up – from the platform, we offer a glimpse of the works in the construction pit, including a briefing from one of our experts, of course. Date: 7, 9 and 11 August
TukTuk tours through Zuidas
Fancy an expedition through Zuidas? You can take an electric tuktuk tour from Monday 24 to Friday 28 July. Each trip has its own specific theme, such as Zuidas by Night or the EarlyBird tour. Places are limited, because only four people can take part per journey. Keep checking this website for the latest news. Date: 24 to 28 July
The now highly acclaimed Valley is winning one architecture award after another. During this guided tour you have the opportunity to admire this eye-catching Zuidas building close-up and from the inside. Our guide will take you into the valley and the atrium. Date: 21 July, July and 4 August
Decorate a sheet pile!
For the regeneration of Amsterdam Zuid station, we’re driving large number of sheet piles into the ground. On 31 July, you have the opportunity to pimp one. We’ll provide brushes and paint – all you need to do is express yourself (also fun for children). Date: 31 July
And much more
There’s even more to do in and around the Zomer Keet. For example, you can take a look in the old courthouse, whose doors are being specially opened for us again (don’t forget your camera). Take a tour of the art in the public spaces of Zuidas or jump on a bike for a ride to the De Nieuwe Meer or Amstel interchanges. Take a journey through the brains of the Zuidasdok architects or build your own model (age 6 and above). There’s something for everyone and you’re warmly invited to attend.
