It was certainly the most grandiose of all European town halls built in the 17th century and in a way the confirmation of the economic and cultural richness of Holland which had definitely shifted now in the Low Countries from the South to the North; confirmed with the Treaty of Munster, agreed in the same year as the start of the building.
