This is such an amazing place - a church built in the attics of 3 adjoining houses so a wealth family could worship in private away from the Calvanists.

Fascinating museum about a hidden church. Architecturally great, audio tour provides a wealth of information. One of the places I recommend to everyone who visits.

This is off most tourists' map, but well worth a visit. The chapel is quite ornate abd you get a feel for the time period when it was used.

This was an interesting look into the history of Amsterdam and the desire of people to worship freely, something that many of us in the free world take for granted! This 17th-century church, is located in a well-preserved canal home from the Dutch Golden Age...More

Not only do you come to understand how the Catholics kept their traditions alive, it's a great way to understand household life in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Absolutely not accessible with any mobility handicap. The tours are self-guided.

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

Hi, the previous answers cover it - good recorded audio explanation in English. I needed some directions to locate the building - it's right down in the red-light end of the street. Have a great time!
