In memoriam

On January 10th, our beloved and valued colleague Gerard Schenderling, completely unexpected ly passed away.

In 1987, at the age of 17, Gerard joined the Venduehuis as a logistician. Since October 2018 he was the face and branch manager of our commercial property at The Hague’s Forepark.

Gerard was only 49 years of age. More

Road works

From Monday, November 19 to Thursday, November 22, the Vendue House will be more difficult to reach by car due to emergency repairs to the sewerage system in the Prinsestraat, leading to the Nobelstraat.
For automobile traffic there is a detour route from the Hogewal (the extension of the Mauritskade) via the Elandstraat, Vondelstraat, Bilderdijkstraat to the Torenstraat with the Q-park Toren-garage. On foot, the Venduehuis can be reached from there in about 3 minutes.

Venduehuis der Notarissen

The Venduehuis der Notarissen will officially celebrate its 200-year anniversary in 2012 as an Auction House in The Hague. Before then, public sales of properties, farms, land, and household effects were organized by the City’s Auctioneers. The auction house was established in September 1811, when The Netherlands were conquered by the French Empire and fully integrated in 1810. The Netherlands came under the administration of the French judicial system. This resulted in further public sales being held under the supervision of a Notary Public.

The Association of Notary Publics in the city of The Hague were the first in the Netherlands to establish the “Venduehuis der Notarissen”. In January 1812 the first auction was held in the present building in the Nobelstraat. The Auction house is now – and always has been – owned by the Association of Notary Publics in The Hague. However they are not the only users of the Auction House. Anyone can buy and sell items other than real estate through our Auction House. The right to buy/sell real estate lies exclusively with the Notary Publics.

Meet our experts to discover what the Venduehuis can offer you. We will be happy to advise you about appraisals and consignment, so that you are able to make the best possible decision about your valuables.
