Conference dinner

On Tuesday May 28 we will organize a conference dinner. Restaurant 1e Klas is situated in the heart of Amsterdam. Architect Pierre Cuypers designed the station in 1889, a time when society still had a rigid social hierarchy. As the name suggests, this restaurant was designed for 19th century society’s first class passengers. The architect opted for high ceilings and giant arched windows for the design and interior, which gives restaurant 1e klas its sense of grandeur and elegance.

Just as in his design for Rijksmuseum, Cuypers was inspired by Late Gothic and Early Renaissance architecture. Numerous symbolic representations of shipping, railway transport, industry, science and technology adorn the station walls.
