Winkel van Sinkel
In 1839, Anton Sinkel's ultramodern department store at the Oudegracht was opened. The Winkel van Sinkel was the very first shop gallery in the Netherlands and runs to the vinkenburgstraat via a passage. Architect P. Adams designed a large neo-classical building, the most remarkable interior is illuminated by a large skylight. Today, this is a grand café and festival palace, the façade of which was repainted in the original colours in 2006. The caryatids were not given their intended bronze colour.
