Hendrik Laurensz Spiegel (1549-1612) was one of the great thinkers and writers of the 16th century. Spiegel, the son of a rich merchant and soap maker, prepared the first grammar rules for the Dutch language. One of his sons, Hendrick Dircksz Spiegel, who lived from 1598 through 1667, was burgomaster of Amsterdam in 1655, 1659, 1663 and 1665

Nowadays it's almost door-to-door art and antiques dealers. Often recognized as the driveway of the Rijksmuseum, many people visit the street to gasp at - or purchase great art.
