Braband Waalwijk In Haarlemmerstraat Amsterdam


Nineteenth Century House In Haarlemmerstraat Amsterdam Netherlands

Built-in the Mid-nineteenth Century, this impressive building with the very elaborate and striking angel on the top, was the former home of the Noord Braband Waalwijk.  The Noord Braband Waalwijk was one of several life insurance companies in Amsterdam. This magnificent architectural wonder sits on the corner of Singel and Haarlemmerstraat and faces the beautiful Amsterdam Central Station.
