Visit Hendrick de Keyser's House Bartolotti

Historical Amsterdam Tours and cultural heritage foundation Hendrick de Keyser invite you!

The Canal Ring Architecture Tour now includes a visit inside Amsterdam’s most beautiful canal house: The House Bartolotti.

This early 1600s monument is now the headquarter of Stichting Hendrik de Keyser, a foundation preserving monumental houses all over the Netherlands. You can recognise their assets by the blue HdK plaquette at the door.

The House Bartolotti deserves a tour in its own right. We offer you a unique chance to experience living among the riches along the Amsterdam canals.
