your out of town feel, in town

garden view at Merkelbach, the restaurant at mansion Frankendael

In Park Frankendael, in the eastern part of Amsterdam you can find the old mansion “Frankendael”; one of the oldest in the city, built around 1680. A part of the mansion is dedicated to restaurant Merkelbach, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The hidden gem is the terrace of this restaurant at the backside of the mansion. While enjoying the view on the beautiful ‘regent style’ garden (and hopefully the sun) you can forget completely that you are in Amsterdam in 2011 and feel like you are in a time and place far far away…

Being part of the public park, you can visit the garden without using the services of the restaurant (but not sit on its terrace).
