About the Weepingtower
  • History

    Café de Schreierstoren is located on the corner of the Geldersekade and Prins Hendrikkade in the heart of Amsterdam, diagonally opposite Amsterdam Central (5 minutes walk), in an old defense tower that used to be part of the city wall of Amsterdam. The tower was built around 1487 on the corner of the IJ and the east side of the city.
    The tower used to be called the Schrayershoucktoren because the city wall made an acute angle here (from schray = "sharp"). The current name of the tower is said to have been given because it stood on the spot where, in the time of the VOC, women said goodbye to their husbands before they went on a journey. This story is probably apocryphal.
