High Tea at the Amrâth | Near Central Station

An afternoon enjoying the fancy assortment of loose leaf tea, served with delicious sweet and savoury delights in the ambiance of the Scheepvaarthuis (Shipping House).

The spectacular building was originally built as an office for six different shipping companies. Designed by architect Van der Mey, it is generally regarded as the first building in the architectural style called 'Amsterdamse School.' The buidling is richly decorated with sculptures and wrought iron, referring to the Dutch shipping history. Its interior is of an extraordinary beauty, to which many artists such as Krop, Kramer and De Klerk contributed. The most remarkable feature of the interior is the central stairwell, abundantly decorated with shells, octopuses and other figures.

After an intensive restoration it was reopened in 2007 as Grand Hotel Amrâth.
