European Heritage Days (Open Monumenten Dag)10th September - 11th September
During Open Monumentendag – every second weekend of September – thousands of historical buildings and sites (about 4.000) are open to the public free of charge. Besides opening their doors, many locations also organize on-site activities like exhibitions, musical performances and guided tours. Each year around 80 to 85 percent of Dutch municipalities participate in the Open Monumentendag, organized by local committees. In recent years around 900,000 visitors have participated annually, making the Open Monumentendag one of the Netherlands’ premier cultural events.
This year they celebrate their 30th anniversary and where they pay tribute to 100 years of Amsterdam School. A special Amsterdam School building is open to the public every second sunday of the month.Back to overview
