Neo-Renaissance style interior

On the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2010, this remarkable part of the Amsterdam Canals is right around the corner of the famous Jordaan area and the lively Haarlemmerdijk. With it’s countless shops, cafes and restaurants, this old city centre neighbourhood offers everything from magnificent sights to endless entertainment. And it’s surprisingly accessible too. Amsterdam’s Central Station is only a five-minute walk away from our office and within half an hour of touching down at Schiphol Airport you can set foot in our elegant lobby. Parking space is available on the canal in front of the office or in one of the many parking garages in the area. In essence, a beautiful and practical office in one of Holland’s most alluring locations. It’s no coincidence we’re still here after all these years.

Corporate location

Keizersgracht (literal English translation: Emperor’s Canal) is the second and widest of the three major canals in the city centre of Amsterdam, in between Herengracht and Prinsengracht. It is named after Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor.

During the last extension the Keizersgracht along the eastern part of the Amstel got constructed. This last part got the name Nieuwe Keizersgracht (New Keizersgracht). Both channels belong to the district Amsterdam Centre.
Many parts of the canal have been built by Amsterdam’s construction masters Philips Vingboons and Adriaan Dortsman. At the Keizersgracht you can find a lot of monumental buildings, for example:

  • Het Huis met de hoofden (The House with the heads), built 1622
  • De Coymanshuizen (The Coymans houses), built 1625
  • Het Huis Marseille (The house Marseille), built 1665
  • Van Raey-Huizen (Van Raey-Huizen), built 1671
  • And De Hoop (The hope), built 1734
