This will only take 10 minutes or less out of your time. Its a beautiful little community of women that did not want to take their vows to become nuns, but otherwise are quite similar. Its a beautiful little area of row houses and a...More
Despite rainy weather I really enjoyed this tranquil place near the Amsterdam Museum. Just take a few steps and you will find yourself in a world that breathes tranquility and peace and seems far away from the bustling city.
Lovely peaceful place we visited on a Sunday morning. Unique history and so interesting to see that the houses of the Begijnhof are now inhabited by normal residents, but still only women like in the old times.
The chapel is worth visiting when you think...More

Not impressive. Nice green central courtyard area surrounded by homes for pious women who wanted a life of piety & service but didn't want to take the vows of a nun. Contains city's oldest wooden house, built 1477. Churches not open much.
This well kept Hof is one of Amsterdam's best. Right in the center. There are a few more Hof's, which were all built to provide lodgings to old or widowed ladies. Just follows the Tripadvisor's self directed Jordaan tour in their Amsterdam smartphoen app.
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
