Get in touch with Het West-Indisch Huis
This stately house from 1617 lies in the heart of Amsterdam in the Haarlemmerstraat. In spite of the location in the centre of Amsterdam, you will experience its peace and quiet as soon as you pass under the gate entrance into the open closed courtyard, truly Unique!
Het West-Indisch Huis owes its name to the West India Company, which was headquartered here between 1623 and 1647. In one of the four rooms the lords Nineteen made the decision to build the city of New Amsterdam, which would grow into today’s New York. The statue of Peter Stuyvesant, governor-general of this post, still graces the courtyard of the building to this day. With its closed inner court and large fine rooms the House provides a prestigious setting for extremely diverse events. We gracefully invite you to come see our beautiful location and its possibilities for yourself.
In 1625 in one of the four rooms at Het West-Indisch Huis the commanders of the West India Company gave the order to build a fort on the island of Manhattan. This was the initial impetus for the metropolis of New York.
