The Amsterdam Town Hall (now the Royal Palace) on Dam Square counts as the most important historical and cultural monument of the Dutch Golden Age. The building symbolizes the tremendous growth and development that the city experienced during the 17th century. Gerrit Berckheyde here portrayed the Town Hall in all its glory, while simultaneously conveying the hustle and bustle of the city’s main square.
