Regular price € 1.800
Unit price

Café 't Papeneiland dates from 1642. In the 17th century there was a Catholic secret church at number 7 at the beginning of the Prinsengracht and it was connected to the building on the corner via a tunnel. The entrance to the tunnel is still in the basement of Café 't Papeneiland. In 1896, the lower part of Prinsengracht 2 was rented to beer tapster Witmond, who started café De Blauwe Druif there. In 1918, the Hendrik de Keyser Association became the owner of the building. It was restored in the twentieth century and the café was called 't Papeneiland' after the former name of the Catholic enclave at the beginning of the Prinsengracht.
