De Burcht / Nationaal Vakbondsmuseum (Trade Union Museum)
De Burcht is the oldest trade union building in the whole of the Netherlands. This impressive structure was designed by Hendrik Petrus Berlage in 1899, and was commissioned by the Algemeene Nederlandsche Diamantwerkers Bond (ANDB). At the time, the ANDB (diamond workers union) was the country’s largest and richest trade union.
You can view the Castle from the inside. Guided tours for groups are available by appointment. Furthermore, the Burcht is occasionally open to interested parties. On the website of the Burcht you will find dates on which the Burcht can be visited by the public.
De Burcht organizes:
Lectures, music performances, city walks, debates, symposiums, lecture series, publications and research. The rooms can be rented, also with catering.
