DESCRIPTION

 

Everything about the Geelvinck Hinlopen House was designed and built to showcase the wealth and position of the owners Albert Geelvinck and Sara Hinlopen. The Geelvinck family were active in the East India and West India trading companies, and in1687, built this house as a family home suitable for entertaining business guests.

Since then the house has been a bank, and there is still a large vault in one of the souterrain rooms. Four rooms on the ground floor have now been restored, and are open to the public on Sundays.
