Tourist landmark

Koepel van Stoop

Visit the website
Amsterdam banker JB Stoop wanted to build a country house on one of the highest points of the fairytale Henschoten estate. Because the groundwater was very deep, this turned out to be impractical and he decided against it. He only built a dome, after the Roman example and dedicated to Mercury. The stone dome is called the 'Dome of Stoop'. The pillars of the building come from the former Koopmansbeurs in Amsterdam, which was demolished in 1836. The dome used to be a tea house. The studio that is now housed in it can only be visited by appointment.
