The ‘Wapen van Amsterdam’ (The Weapon of Amsterdam) is our salon. The salon is named after the spiegelretourship (East Indiaman ship) ‘Wapen van Amsterdam’ which was built in 1653 for the ‘Kamer van Amsterdam’ (Room of Amsterdam) at the VOC-wharf in Amsterdam. The famous ‘Wapen van Amsterdam’ transported diamonds, pearls and tin from Batavia to Amsterdam. Fourteen years later the ship perished in Iceland.
The ‘Wapen van Amsterdam’ is located on the ground floor. With it’s French doors and verandah it is the perfect area to receive guests. This room has more to offer than just receiving guests in style. How about giving a presentation or having a conference with a small or medium sized group of people?
In Januari this room will be completely renovated.
