About the Weepingtower
  • Historie

    Café de Schreierstoren is located on Geldersekade in Amsterdam, diagonally opposite Amsterdam (5 minutes walk), in a central old defense tower that used to be part of a central point of Amsterdam's city wall. The tower was built around 1487 on the corner of the IJ and the east side of the city.
     
    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 started at sea.
     
    In addition to a café with lunch and a small evening menu, we also offer rooms for your events with dinner. Impressive spaces and terraces with a beautiful view over the Amsterdam canals.
