City of Amsterdam Archives

  Vijzelstraat 32 ,   Centrum          (+31) 202 51 15 10     more than a year ago
This famous example of Amsterdam School architecture is now home to the city archives but is often called De Bazel after its illustrious designer K.P.C. de Bazel (1869 - 1923), who unfortunately passed away before its completion in 1926. It was originally built for a bank that would later become ABN AMRO, but now hosts conferences, exhibitions and, of course, the archives. A visitors’ centre is available as well as a café and the archives are open to the public. You can also view thousands of documents or trace your genealogy online at its website.
