Well worth the visit. Great to see an actual Dutch house with an amazing church in the loft. It is in the red light district so you almost get 2 for the price of 1

This museum is a fantastic place to visit in the centre of Amsterdam. The audio tour takes you on a coherent story through time, explaining how the church came to be. It is well worth a visit

My group of 5 visited Our Lord in the Attic, and every single one of us loved it. The audio tour was excellent and allowed for additional information if you were interested in specific details of a certain room. My daughters (ages 8 and 11) were provided a kids' version of the audio tour, which helped make the visit fun... More

As far as I know it's Op Zolder. this is certainly a must-see even if it is in the red light area. Maybe that makes it even more interesting. Catholics were allowed to hold services in secret here by the authorities. Educational.

This is a small museum that is FULL of rich history of Amsterdam. What a great place. You get to know the life in Amsterdam of 17th century, and visit one of the best churches...... On the top 2 floors of this house. Awesome!!!

Amazing big church built across the attic space of three houses. You get to walk around the old rooms of the houses too, before you go "into the attic". Everyone walks up the stairs and goes "Wow". I'd have loved to have been there when the owners got the carpenters in and said "Can you just cut away the floors... More

Pristine museum. Without a friend telling about this I would not have visited. Not a religious person at all, so wouldn't have really looked at this before the recommendation. However... wow. I'm so glad I did. Fabulously maintained and so, so interesting. Incredible to think this actually existed (among many others!). Not sure how older people/ less able would do... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
