History

Until the early 17th century this location on the Keizersgracht was home to a hat makers workshop, which also explains its current name ("lit. the red hat"). In 1630 a new building was erected here to function as a hidden Remonstrant church, which it did during the following centuries. The building functioned as church until 1957. After a period of disuse the location was renovated and reopened as centre for a debate and cultural events in 1990. The location is also being used for weekly church services again.
