    Huis Willet-Holthuysen

    Canal House at de Herengracht

    Step into the past within the impressive Willet-Holthuysen House in the center of Amsterdam. This double mansion on the Herengracht contains many period rooms, spaces seemingly frozen in time. Every six months an exhibition by a contemporary maker is also held here, while the French-style garden remains a calm oasis in the midst of the bustling canal belt.

    How to get there

    Public transport

    The museum is easily accessible by public transport: 

    • Tram 4 (stop Rembrandtplein) and 14 (stop Waterlooplein) 
    • Metro 51, 53 and 54 (stop Waterlooplein, exit Nieuwe Herengracht)

    The Willet-Holthuysen House is located on the Herengracht, part of Amsterdam’s Canal District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Due to its many stairs and the absence of a lift, the historic building is unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users or mobility scooters. We are currently looking into how we can make the Willet-Holthuysen House better accessible for everyone.
