"Het West-Indisch-Huis (West Indies house)" Amsterdam Off The Beaten Path Tip by Airpunk
Amsterdam Off The Beaten Path: 527 reviews and 780 photos
The old seat of the Dutch West Indies Company (W.I.C) was built in 1623. It was already given up by the company in 1648 and has been used for many purposes since then. Today, it houses a restaurant (Piet Heyn Kelder) and rooms for parties and meetings. The courtyard in the middle of the building is worth a short visit - and its free. There you can also see the statue of Peter Stuyvesant, the last mayor of New Amsterdam before the city was captured by the English and named New York. <br><br>Address: Herenmarkt 93 - 99, near to the Anner Frank huis.
