House Bartolotti, Amsterdam, front view with two chimneys

Bartolotti House

Completed in 1620, the Bartolotti House was one of the largest merchant’s houses in the city, with a richly decorated and slightly curved facade (which follows a bend in the canal). In 1755 a large annex was added. This house, on the Herengracht 170, has the first neck-gable built in Amsterdam. On the roof are two large corner chimneys.

After several extensive restorations, the ground floor and basement were converted into Museumhuis Bartolotti, so you can admire the inside of this stunning building in Rococo style with its magnificent murals and ceiling paintings.

The mansion was built for the wealthy Willem van den Heuvel, heir to Giovanni Battista Bartolotti, a rich businessman from Bologna who was married to his aunt. One of the clauses for accepting the inheritance was that he had to change his name to “Bartolotti”.
