first electricity station in the netherlands.

The story begins at Hotel Krasnapolsky, more than a hundred years ago. The hotel owner decides to build an electricity supply for customers. The reason? This way the hotel can stay open longer and therefore attract more customers.

The initiative stands out and people in the neighborhood also see something in it. The hotelier is getting more and more requests from neighbors. They ask: ‘Do you want to move the cable? Then we can also open longer’.
