Perfectly wedged in-between Museumplein and Vondelpark, this impressive 19th-century villa has much to offer. “De Roos” (the Rose) is a not-for-profit centre for personal and spiritual development. That’s a lot of words for saying you’re always welcome here.

With over 70 lessons every week, we offer courses and workshops on all kinds of topics, from daily yoga and meditation lessons, to networking and presentation skills, singing, astrology and even therapy consults.

You name it, we’ve got it! To top it off, we house a fully equipped kitchen, a conservatory, a terrace, a gift shop and a meditation room.

Curious? Of course you are! We invite you to come catch the great atmosphere here at de Roos! Grab a cup of coffee and some homemade pie, browse our spiritual gift shop on the second floor, or check out the brochures at our friendly reception desk (Yes, we do speak English).

Want to know more? Have a look at our Facebook page or the online agenda. We hope to see you soon!
