Make an impression in the heart of Amsterdam
Whether you’re hosting a conference for international visitors or a group of Amsterdam natives, our convenient location on the Lauriergracht is sure to wow.
The prettiest canal of them all
Okay, we might be biased in that one. But that does not change the fact that the Lauriergracht is picturesque.
Built in the 17th century, the Lauriergracht one of the six canals that remain to connect the Prinsengracht and the Lijnbaansgracht. The rest were filled and paved over in the 19th century, forming the streets and passageways of the central Jordaan neighborhood that is the trendiest area of the city today. This makes our little grachtje so unique, and with 36 rijksmonumenten on it, it seems that the government of the Netherlands agrees!
For 400 years the houses on this canal have served a number of purposes, from Lutheran orphanages to sugar factories, and the canal has been a place of reinvention and revitalization. We’ve continued this long tradition of innovation, transforming an old chocolate factory into the first carbon-neutral canal house in the city. However, even as we’ve modernized we’ve worked hard to preserve the history of this spot, and we work in a living museum of antiques and collectables.
Close enough to walk (or boat)
If your clients are staying in one of Amsterdam’s trendy hotels, the good news is that we are just a short walk away. Unlike many other events spaces that are focused on sustainability, we are located in the heart of the city.
For example, we’re extremely close to these hotels:
- Andaz Amsterdam: 650 meters (8 minute walk down the Prinsengracht)
- The Hoxton: 750 meters (9 minute walk)
- Pulitzer Amsterdam: 450 meters (6 minute walk)
- Hotel De Hallen: 1.2 kilometers (15 minute walk)
We also have our own Conscious Boat that can pick you and your guests up from any canal-side location! This is a particularly fantastic way to impress any out-of-town guests
There is also convenient parking 700 meters away from us in case your guests need to drive.
The Conscious Club
The Green Temple is located inside of The Conscious Club, our sister company that is devoted to providing an inspirational environment for transformations of the mind, body, and spirit on the individual level.

As part of The Conscious Club, we are truly the experts in sustainability and consciousness. We understand the full power that making thoughtful decisions yields, and we practice what we preach.
