Discover the wonders of Amsterdam's Golden Age

Discover the wonders of Amsterdam’s Golden Age with a private guided tour of Museum van Loon – headquarters of the wealthy and prestigious van Loon family since 1884. With a unique collection of nineteenth-century furnishings and artwork, as well as a history dating back to the 1600s, Keizersgracht 672 is a gorgeous building with a thoroughly captivating atmosphere.

The van Loons have been at the heart of Dutch aristocratic society for more than four centuries, as bankers, merchants, mayors and nobles, and their flair for the arts and taste for style is clearly reflected in their gorgeous home, the upper floors of which they still inhabit to this day. Enter the magnificently grand hallway and drink in the solid brass rococo banisters dating from 1760, and see if you can spot all twelve signs of the zodiac in the rooms elaborate stucco reliefs.

As you proceed through the museum you will certainly be enchanted by the rare empire-wood flooring and the unique Drakensteyn wall hangings, originally owned by Queen Beatrix. Even the museum’s garden is infused with a refined and charming ambience, redesigned based on the original 1679 plan and packed full of evergreens and flowers. At its end is the house’s coach-house, which features several original horse-drawn carriages, as well as enchanting trompe l’oeil windows.

If you have time, be sure to stop for a filling meal in the museum’s stunning dining room, with its sumptuous 24-seat table and original artworks. Available to rent for private events, it’s a venue that will certainly make any meal truly special.
