"Public Art - Prince Hendrik on the Hendrikkade" Statues and Sculptures Tip by yooperprof

Statues and Sculptures, Amsterdam: 32 reviews and 59 photos


Favorite thing: Nice muttonchops!

Prince Hendrik (1827-1879), sometimes called "the Navigator" was the younger brother of King William III. He dedicated his life to the Dutch navy, and died as an Admiral of the Fleet. Prins Hendrikkade is his main legacy.

The bust is just across the street from the impressive Scheepvaarthuis.
