Are you organizing an event? Then we welcome you in the halls and gardens of the Amstel Boathouse. With pride, they carry the names of the noble East Indiaman ships which the VOC used for traveling. The East Indiaman ship was the most important type of transport ship for the VOC, a sailing boat for transporting goods and people. You can feel the presence of these ships as soon as you step inside the halls as they show history and movement.
The gardens can be deployed in almost as many ways as the VOC-ships and, having the capacity of 20 to 200 people, it is the ideal (outdoor)space for any occasion.
The capacity of our halls varies from 12 to 350 people. Of course there are numerous possibilities of combinations and formations of the halls and gardens. For this reason, Amstel Boathouse has a suitable space for every type of event.
The ‘Hollandse Leeuw’ (the Dutch Lion) is the exquisite hall for reception of small party’s. This room is located on the ground floor of the ‘spiegelretourschip’ (East Indiaman ship) that demolished in 1618. It was rejected in Hirado, Japan, after it had made a journey from the Philippines.

The ‘Wapen van Amsterdam’ (Weapon of Amsterdam) is our salon. The salon was named after the ‘spiegelretourschip’ (East Indiaman ship) the ‘Wapen van Amsterdam’ that was built in 1653 at the VOC-wharf for the ‘Kamer van Amsterdam’ (Room of Amsterdam).

The ‘Waterland’ is the second garden of the Amstel Boathouse. Throughout the whole year it is a good place to come in the winter gardens, for groups of 20 to 200 people. Take your guests on a journey to a place where natural beauty, inspiration and outdoor living are in the spotlight.

The ‘Hollandse tuin’ (Dutch garden) is one of the three gardens that belong to Amstel Boathouse. All gardens have a glass roof. Because of the spacious feel that this construction provides, these gardens are exceptionally suitable for (creative) meetings, but are also the ideal place to receive guests for private parties like anniversaries.
40 - 120 people
The Batavia hall looks over the greenness of the Martin Luther King park. You can enjoy the daylight that shines through the glass roof and facade and fill the room. This room is very suitable for having drinks, receptions, conferences and creative sessions.

In the grand Hollandia hall you will feel like you traveled back in time on a VOC-ship because of the view you will have of the Amstel. Together with six other ships, the ‘Hollandia’ (1602) departed on the 22nd of December 1607 from the ‘Spanjaardsgat’ at Texel.

Are you looking for a space for a large group? Then the spacious ‘Oranjezaal’ is very suitable. The ship ‘Oranjezaal’ (1750) saw the existence of the VOC-shipyard in Enkhuizen and was in use for twenty years. Around twenty years after its construction it was sold in the Dutch Indies.
