About Huize Frankendael

Huize Frankendael is the last remaining country estate within the city of Amsterdam. Build in the 18th century, the house was used by people of high distinction to enjoy friendship and nature.

While the city has enclosed the country estate, the joy of pleasure still remains. House, kitchen and garden are open throughout the year for the combination of nature, gastronomy and art&culture.
