‘Het Grachtenhuis’ [The Canal House] tells the story of the ring of canals in Amsterdam. It illustrates why the area of the ring of canals is so unique, and why it is still so alive after 400 years. Although it is the most important tourist attraction in the Netherlands, with some 3 million visitors a year, its story has not been told before in such a way. The granting of the UNESCO world heritage status to the area in August 2010 makes the story even more relevant. The seventeenth-century ring of canals is an international icon of architecture and city planning.
Kossmann.dejong designed the multimedia story about the canals on the first floor of Het Grachtenhuis.
