Het West-Indisch Huis

The Birthplace of New York – Amsterdam City Center

Het West-Indisch Huis has a long and rich history. The location owes its name to the West India Company, which was housed here during the 17th century. Now, almost four hundred years later, this monumental building is a one-of-a-kind event venue with a beautiful courtyard and three wonderful rooms to host dinners, meetings, receptions and weddings. It can be reached by public transport, coach, car, bicycle and even by boat – as a jetty is just meters away.
