Must see De Bazel


Situated In the heart of Amsterdam, De Bazel is an impressive art deco building with a rich and royal history from the beginning of the twentieth century. The building, once the headquarters of the Netherlands Trading Company and later the ABN AMRO bank, has many remarkable stories to tell. Currently, De Bazel occupies a luxurious conference centre, a nice café, photo exposition, souvenir shop and the Amsterdam City Archives.

When outside, it’s easy to pass by the building without taking notice, but it’s definitely worth to take a look inside. Especially the colorful cellar with old fashion lockers that were used for treasuries are a must-see.


The buliding is accessible to people with reduced mobility. De Bazel offers easy access as the entrance has a wheelchair lift in order to enter the building. The building provides plenty of space to move freely and several adapted toilets are available. Tramlines 16 and 24 stop straight in front of the main entrance. There is a disabled parking space right beside the entrance.

Futhermore, it´s possible to get an interpreter and all expositions have written descriptions. Guide dogs are not permitted access, due to strict archive laws, but upon request this might be possible.
