Sunset on Pampus

Saturday 20 June 2015
18:30 - 22:30


On Saturday the 20th June on the longest day of the year, Pampus will open its doors for this special evening. During this unique evening opening, guides are ready to give you a tour through the fortress in the twilight. On the terrace the atmosphere will be made complete by fire braziers and lounge music. At 22:04 the sun sets over the skyline of Amsterdam. This is a wonderful experience from the middle of the IJmere surrounded only by water, birds and late sailors heading home for port. The guides will tell of the life of the 216 soldiers who, 100 years ago, during the First World War, were stationed here on the island. Only they could not go home at the end of the evening.

The ferry boat ‘Stern’ sails at 19:00 from the Herengracht (opposite nr.33) in Muiden and at 22:30 will return to Muiden. To reserve your tickets at a special price of € 15.50, please go to the ticket shop on our website, Tickets are also available on the boat at €17.50 for adults.
