Frankendael House is said to be one of the very few remaining stately homes in Amsterdam. It was built in the 17th century on reclaimed land that used to be a lake, hence the name Watergraafsmeer.

The house and park are on Middenweg. Follow the number 9 tram line to get there.

Second photo: The house itself is closed and seems to be empty, but the surrounding park is open to the public.

Third photo: Pond in the park at Frankendael.
