Known as the Trippenhuis, this happens to be one of the widest old houses in Amsterdam . Built in 1660 by two wealthy brothers—Lodewijk and Hendrick Trip, the house was built for Mister Trip's coachman when the coachman expressed his desire to have a home built as wide as his master's front door. Now it is home to the Dutch Academy of Sciences.
