The Windketel

Stay in a unique historic building

The Windketel is a little freestanding octagonal brick tower in the center of a quiet square in an automobile-free neighborhood. Built in 1897 as part of Amsterdam’s water works, it now contains a luxury apartment for two, furnished with the creations of famous Dutch designers

Ideally located to explore the city

It’s an ideal home base for culture-loving visitors to the city. The Western Gas Works culture park is around the corner and the historic Jordaan neighborhood is only a ten-minute walk away. Tram 10, which goes to all the major museums, stops practically at the door. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the privacy and tranquility of the location, which is protected from traffic on all sides and used mainly by residents of the apartments surrounding the square.
