The neo-Gothic Posthoornkerk is the first church in Amsterdam, designed by PJH Cuypers, who later would design the Central Station and the Rijksmuseum. The church, a three-aisled basilica with nave and cloverleaf shaped choir had to be built on a small plot of land and has therefore two galleries, one above the other. The construction began in September 1861.

The church threatened to be demolished, but this was prevented in 1986, thanks to a plan of the Foundation Posthoornkerk. The colourful church was restored in 1989 and in 2007 equipped with modern facilities like central heating, toilets and catering facilities. The location is rented as office space and as a beautiful location for events.

The heated nave can be divided into two spaces due to the placing of the Espero Sonico mobile wall with digital prints. Therefore the location is good to use for conferences and with it’s flexible space ideal for theatre, concerts and cultural presentations. The Posthoornkerk is also a gorgeous setting for weddings.
