Felix Meritis


Snug and festive

Originally, the floor of Shaffyzaal was used to perform physics experiments, while the spacious balconies were occupied by affluent citizens of Amsterdam who came to Felix Meritis out of passion in the arts and sciences. Later, the room was used as a stage for performances of experimental dance, mime, theatre, and music. The old physics room owes its name to an exciting time when the likes of Ramses Shaffy, Liesbeth List and Freek de Jonge created furor and rage in this very Shaffyzaal.

Ideal for:

Performances, celebrations, presentations, receptions, conferences, lectures, workshops.
