Fodor's Review

This Neoclassical gatehouse, rebuilt in 1840, was one of four entrances to Amsterdam until the mid-18th century. It has been variously used as a military post, train station, fire station, and a police station; in 1986 it was restored and converted into private apartments. A bit of a weird white elephant looming in a traffic crossing, it is a handy marker to find your way to the Westerpark, one of the city's hippest parks to hang out in the summer.
