Beer tastings

Since the 14th century, the cellar was used by merchants as a storage place for food, wines and beer.
Therefore, ‘De Vergulde Fontein’ is the ideal setting for a real beer tasting. 

You can already book a tasting for 4 people.

Argentine tango

‘De Vergulde Fontein’ has been the home of Argentine tango for many years.

Here you get the chance to become acquainted with the basic principles of tango with the guidance of experienced teachers. You can do this in a group of up to 12 couples as a one-off experience or on a regular basis.

If you are looking for a special present for your partner, then book a private introduction lesson.

‘De Drie Koningen’  

In the 14th century, ‘De Drie Koningen’ was one of the guest houses in the vicinity of the old port. Merchants stayed here an kept their food and barrels for preservation in the basement ‘Vergulde Fontein’.

Since 1995, the tradition of hospitality has been restored by the redesign of the property into 6 spacious and comfortable holiday apartments, grouped around a courtyard garden.
