Plantage aan het Water

De Burcht is in 1900 gebouwd naar ontwerp van H.P. Berlage in opdracht van de roemruchte Algemeene Nederlandsche Diamantbewerkersbond. Met het gebouw wilde ANDB-voorzitter Henri Polak (1868-1943) een monument voor de arbeidersbeweging tot stand brengen. Veel kunstenaars leverden een bijdrage aan de verfraaiing. Een schitterend trappenhuis, originele stijlkamers, muurschilde-ringen, reliëfs en glas-in-loodramen zijn nog in hun volle pracht te bewonderen. Nu is hier De Burcht gevestigd: centrum voor debat en educatie op het gebied van arbeidsverhoudingen.
