The Duif (The Dove) church is a hidden gem amidst the stately residences on the Prinsengracht canalside. The exceptionally elegant neoclassicist building and the modest appearance of this heritage site from 1857 conceal a surprisingly grand interior.
De Duif offers a wonderful setting for lectures, symposia, dinner parties, weddings and other events. Its adjustable acoustic ceiling makes the building particularly suitable for concerts and recitals. A grand piano is available on site. The building has a fully equipped space for conferences and meetings, as well as several additional rooms with service options. In addition, De Duif is a marvellous and unique wedding location. This former Roman Catholic church was restored in 1999-2002, with full preservation of authentic details and additions such as a heating system, washrooms and food preparation facilities.
Stadsherstel (City Restoration) carefully restores monumental and historic buildings in the centre of Amsterdam and its rural surroundings. Heritage sites such as churches, forts and water pumping stations are thus given a new life. These characteristic locations offer the perfect ambiance for weddings, receptions, conferences, lectures and dinner parties. By choosing a Stadsherstel location for your event, you contribute to the restoration of the city and the preservation of cultural heritage. Stadsherstel is happy to think along with your needs and bids you a warm welcome!
