Overview

Construction of this architectural gem was commissioned by Governor-General Herman Willem Daendels in 1809 but did not finish until 1828. Modeled in an Empire style, the proportionate Witte Huis (White House) measures 160 meters lengthwise. The piles on the first story feature a Doric design, whereas those on the second level sport an Ionic one. In the past, the building hosted many state functions and even served as a post office, a printing office and a high court. Today, it houses the Ministry of Finance. Admission is free, but written permission is required three days in advance.
