About
The world's first limited company, stock exchange, central bank and economic bubble... It all happened in Amsterdam, within walking distance. Follow the money in Amsterdam as financial center of the world: Nazi banks, Resistance banks, a pawnshop from 1614, the financers of the Louisiana Purchase and a visit to a 1920s bank fault. Enrich yourself on the Financial History Tour.

We’ve lived in Amsterdam for 10 years and finally took the time to learn more about the fascinating history. The financial tour did not disappoint - learning about both the financial innovations of the Dutch, but also the uncomfortable truths in its history.
Thank you, Thijs, for the engaging tour!
