History of the Amsterdam seaports

Alpha is centrally located in the ports of Amsterdam, a stone’s throw from the city center and with an unprecedented rich history. In 1275, Amsterdam received a toll privilege from the Dutch Count Floris V., which was the beginning of the turbulent development of Amsterdam and its seaports. Amsterdam grew into the largest city harbor in Europe. Around 1600, Amsterdam was at the peak of its hegemony. This period of prosperity and affluence is still known today as the golden age.
