On the weekend of the 13th and 14th of September, some of the most important buildings, monuments and private homes of Amsterdam will open their doors to the public during Amsterdam Heritage Days.
This event takes place every year once a year and represents a unique opportunity to visit more than 50 buildings that are usually closed to the public. You will be able to discover old inns, canal houses and monuments related to the shipping industry.
This year is centered around the theme of “Travelling”, through which the visitor will be able to explore the houses that belonged to Dutch explorers from the XVIIth century. The Dutch Golden Age brought to the city of Amsterdam objects, paintings and customs from far away lands, which have shaped the development of the city, both in the corridors of its buildings and its architecture.
This editions particular highlight is the Haarlemmermeer Station, “a part of the city that still feels spontaneous”, says Project Leader Lisette Breedveld.
