“Hard to find”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

It's quite hard to find, and I'm not sure it's worth it. Yes, place is nice but there are a lot of other nice places around.

“A closed community but truly breathtaking place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Dedicated and resided by The Beguines this area is a closed community that offers access to the public for a limited time. The whole place is built around a chapel and has beautiful set houses and well manicured lawns. The access is free but at the same time expected from its visitors to be considerate about the sanctity of the place. The whole place is serene and calm and is a juxtaposition considering it is placed right in the heart of colorful Amsterdam
