Gevel de drie hendricken

Half way down the Bloemgracht at number 87-91 there is the House with a Thousand Windows. This house is also known as “the Triplet house” or “De Drie Hendricken. Actually three houses, this is a very quaint golden-age building with step-gables.

The house with a thousand windows

How much windows does this house have?

Since we like to verify all facts in Amsterdam, we actually counted the little window panes.

The house was built in 1642. It has some interesting details like marker stones and stained-glass windows.

Certainly worth a small detour if you find yourself in the Jordaan area.
