Amsterdam Central Station is the central station of the Dutch capital Amsterdam. It was built between 1881 and 1889 to a design by P.J.H. Cuypers, A.L. van Gendt (station building) and L.J. Eijmer (station cover). The station has six platforms that are accessible via three transverse corridors under the 15 tracks (11 of which platform tracks). Every day, Amsterdam Central has approximately 160,000 boarding and alighting passengers, making it the busiest station in the Netherlands after Utrecht Central station.

The tower was originally part of the Regulierspoort, one of the main gates in Amsterdam's medieval city wall. The gate, built in the years 1480, consisted of two towers and a guard house.


After the gate went up in flames in a 1618 fire, only the guard house and part of the western tower remained standing. The tower was then rebuilt in Amsterdam Renaissance style in 1620,[1] with an eight-sided top half and elegant open spire designed by Hendrick de Keyser,[1] featuring a clockwork with four clockfaces and a carillon of bells.


The name of the tower refers to the fact that the guard house on side of it was used to mint coins in the 17th Century. In the Rampjaar ("disastrous year") of 1672, when both England and France declared war on the Dutch Republic and French troops occupied much of the country, silver and gold could no longer be safely transported to Dordrecht and Enkhuizen (where coins were normally minted), so the guard house of the Munttoren was temporarily used to mint coin.
