Felix Meritis is located in the heart of Amsterdam. Built in 1788, Felix Meritis is one of the grandest buildings on the Keizersgracht with Holland’s oldest concert hall. Nowadays, Felix Meritis is an independent European centre for art and sciences and an (inter)national meeting place in Amsterdam.
In Felix Meritis art, culture, philosophy and politics are matters of everyday life. It provides the European public with a space for reflection and connection, a home in which to network and be surprised. Under the motto ‘Connecting Cultures’ Felix Meritis fosters the European dialogue and takes part in national and international cultural networks. Through deeper understanding and dialogue with different groups in Europe and the world, Felix Meritis strengthens the insight into and understanding of the European cultural integration process among citizens of Amsterdam, Europe and the world.
