Do you want to spend the night at a place you will never forget? It is possible in the centuries-old centre of Dordrecht, near the mighty Drierivierenpunt. At De Luthiers, water and music ensure tranquillity. Mendelssohn or Thelonius Monk, classical music and jazz come together. Experience a Midsummer Night's Dream or Round Midnight in the specially decorated rooms. The guest rooms are located in the attic above the studio of luthiers Wout Bosma and Lucienne van der Lans. The rooms have two to four beds. On the first floor is De Huiskamer with a grand piano, where guests can make music. It makes the B&B extremely suitable for musicians who want to study or play together. After playing together, they can enjoy the thousand monuments that Dordrecht has to offer. This can be done on foot or by bike. Guests without musical interest are just as welcome. We make sure that everyone feels at home with us.
History of the building
The history of this building goes back many centuries. In this part of Dordrecht, the trade in wine, wool and wood flourished in the 17th century. Hundreds of monumental buildings and houses remind us of its rich past. However, this building does not have the official status of a monument, but is a protected cityscape. The deep building can best be described as a classic pipe dream. For more than a century, this building on the Voorstraat has been home to true craftsmen. The Van Riemsdijk family had a bicycle shop there for over a hundred years until the beginning of this century. The building also appears to have had a musical past. Van Riemsdijk and his daughter were very musical and won many competitions on a piano and a pistonet (kind of trumpet). Since 2010, the studio of De Luthiers has been located on the ground floor. Luthier' is the name for the centuries-old craft of violin and lute makers. Lucienne van der Lans specialises in new violins and the restoration of bowed instruments. Her husband Wout Bosma builds and restores guitars.
The beautiful meeting room is located above a shop and workshop. The music room on the first floor is an ideal space to have lunch together, hold meetings, or experience concerts or performances. And anyone who can play the keys can play the beautiful grand piano.
