  • On the way to this point you can see beautiful buildings with extensions and turrets. Also pay attention to the windows: all different in shape and size!
    The Victorieplein used to be called Daniël Willinkplein, after the poet Daniël Willink, known for his work on Amstellandsche Arkadia and other writings about the beauty of the city. However, the name was changed to commemorate the Allied victory in May 1945. Amsterdam's first skyscraper is also located here: 12 floors and 46 meters high. It was built between 1930-1932 by architect Jan Staal. The building shows characteristics of the architectural styles of the Amsterdam School, of functionalism and of the new professionalism.
