One of my favourite places on our recent visit to Amsterdam, the museum Ons'Lieve Heer Op Solder is not as busy as the other more famous and well known museums but I would have to say it is a must see. Full of history and religious upheaval the house which is actually three houses all combined tells the story of... More

When people say this church is a hidden gem, they are not lying! I came here on a Friday mid morning. It was not crowded which I loved. I was able to walk thru the 3 canal houses at my own pace, admiring every inch of the houses and the church. Its a self guided tour that was super informative.... More

This site allows you to experience the inside of one of the beautiful buildings you see everywhere from the outside. But it is also three buildings put together and a former warehouse, so that mixes it up quite a bit. There are narrow halls and stairways but they are organized for the visitors. The top is a church or what... More

Didn't know what to expect but the tour is very clean and modern, a nice little gem in the older part of the centre. Worth the entrance fee.

After a huge makeover, (I visited this museum before) this museum is still the peaceful and interesting place one simply has to visit. Walking om my complimentary slippers (offered by the museum to put over your shoes) I feel immediately at home and thoroughly enjoyed the hour diving into Dutch cultural history. What a treasure! Thank God Amsterdam has a... More

This is a lovely place to visit and would recommend it to anyone interested in the history and religion of Amsterdam. It is beautifully restored and very interesting from both the historical and religious aspects of life. It is very easy to get to from central station and makes for a nice way to start a day of sightseeing.

You can easily miss this one. It is very deceiving when you look at the modern entrance but do not be fooled – this is a hidden gem in the Red Light District. It takes you back to the 16 century when it was prohibited for Catholics to hold mass publicly during the Protestant Reformation. Not sure about the entrance... More

Great place to have a glance into 17th-19th century Amsterdam everydays life. Apart from the private Catholic church hidden on the attic you get to see completely furnished rooms from various periods.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood 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.
