Now the luxury Grand Hotel Amrath, the grand 1916-built Scheepvaarthuis was the first true example of Amsterdam School architecture. The exterior resembles a ship's bow and is encrusted in elaborate nautical detailing; look for figures of Neptune, his wife and four females that represent the compass points. Step inside to admire stained glass, gorgeous light fixtures and the art-deco-ish central stairwell.
