Across the IJ river, at a stone’s throw from its historic city center, lies Shelter: an Amsterdam haven for quality dance music.

Built around the idea of creating a home away from home for veteran clubbers and enthusiastic newcomers alike, Shelter Amsterdam provides a diverse clubbing experience in the Dutch capital - with design, experience and sound quality continually in mind.

ROUTE

Shelter is located at a stone’s throw from the city centre. Overhoeksplein is easily reachable by ferry. Right behind Amsterdam Central Station you will find ferries frequently leaving to Buiksloterweg.

Once you’ve crossed the IJ river to Buiksloterweg, take an immediate left and walk towards the high building known as the A’DAM Toren (A’DAM Tower). Make a right turn around the A’DAM Toren after crossing the bridge and you’ve reached Overhoeksplein. Shelter’s entrance is unmistakable: it’s the lifted hatch that sticks out prominently from the square.
