- Venue Description:
Willet-Holthuysen is a true gem and a must for those who would love to know what Amsterdam's canal houses looked like centuries ago. In this 17th-century house, named after the last inhabitant (who left her house and everything in it to the city of Amsterdam in 1889), you can visit a 18th-century kitchen, as well as other 18th-19th-century rooms. The garden, laid out in 18th-century style, is also worth a visit. Don't miss the art collection from the former 17th-century owner of the house, Abraham Willet on the top floor.
