The church at the top of this house is really unexpected as the entrance area is so modern. We really enjoyed the audio tour and found the history quite fascinating. Good value (10 euros) and takes about an hour to go round. No queues to get in and not crowded while we were in there either.

This museum has done an excellent job with presentation of this Lord in the Attic hidden church. The audio tour which guides you throughout multiple levels is comprehensive and entertaining. I was there for hours and it was only ten Euros!

The new modern entrance and information gallery leads to this house which shows various rooms furnished in different periods. The church itself - built in the upper storeys across three houses, is astonishing and a rare surviving example of a hidden church. There was far more to see than I expected, and very informative. We concluded our visit with a... More

This is a fascinating museum and is a MUST on a trip to Amsterdam. Very good audio guide. An insight into the historical religious tolerance of the Dutch - perhaps a lesson for today?

This is an ordinary house until you reach the top floors and be prepared to be amazed at what is hidden. This is a lovely place to visit and full of history. There are audios available to hear all about the rooms. A definite must see if you have an hour or two to spare.

This museum in an old canal house demonstrates the period after the Spanish invasion in which the Catholic religion was not to be shown publicly. Therefore this type of churches were build. A definitely must visit!

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.
