Visit a canal house
Exclusive offer during the
Historical Amsterdam Tours and cultural heritage foundation Hendrick de Keyser invite you!
The Canal Ring Architecture Tour now includes a sneak visit inside Amsterdam’s most beautiful canal house: The House Bartolotti.
This early 1600s monument is now the headquarters 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.
Canal Ring Architecture Walk
In Dutch society the ‘Canal Ring’ has become synonymous for the urban elite of the country: a closed biotope of the political and intellectual upper class. Learn from a local how this small group shaped (and continues to shape) the image of the Canal Ring in The Netherlands.
