We walked through the Red Light district to find this hidden gem - a Catholic church in the attic of a canal-side house. Superbly presented with a spacious, modern entrance and exhibition space in the house next door, the audio guide takes you through the...More

I utterly enjoyed this short stop on our whirlwind tour of Amsterdam. The audio tour is so helpful so you can move at your own pace. The stories of the family who created this space, as well as the history of this time, were fascinating....More

Neat way to see what the buildings on the canal look like from the inside and appreciate how people lived. Church is amazing. Nice little tour worth a visit..

This place is well worth a visit. It’s fairly inconspicuous from the outside but on going inside it is amazing. Of course you get to see the hidden house church on the top floors, which is quite remarkable and unusual, and impressive the lengths they...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
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

temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
