Guided Tour Typical Canal House

Discover Huis Vasari, including a delightful cup of coffee or tea!

The home of the Vrije Academie is a magnificent building on the Herengracht: Huis Vasari. Well, actually, it's two magnificent buildings. Did you know that numbers 366 and 368 were simultaneously constructed in 1660-1662 by the Cromhout family? The Dutch classicist style was designed by the architect Philip Vingboons. The historic residential areas such as the large lounge, garden rooms and old kitchens are reminders of this past. Huis Vasari is a place where, in addition to lecture halls, an exhibition space, and a café, we also highlight the history of this beautiful building.

Most beautiful staircase of Amsterdam!

Have you always wanted to see what lies behind the façade of a grand canal house? Join the guided tour led by architectural historian Jelte van Koperen. He will tell you all about the unique combination of the two canal houses, the historic kitchens, and the symbolism in Jacob de Wit's ceiling paintings. Of course, the monumental wooden staircase is not to be missed; often described as the most beautiful spiral staircase in Amsterdam! The tour is suitable for everyone; a warm welcome in advance!
