I know that people flock to the Anne Frank House but you can see this place without a long line (I know, there are other reasons for visiting the Anne Frank House). This house is a restored museum that also gives history on how Roman Catholics practiced their faith during the Dutch Reformed period. The church itself is beautiful and... More

Its a secret Catholic church built inside two little adjacent houses. If you love churches, history and architecture, this is going to blow your mind. Small stairways to strange levels in the house, with rooms almost appearing out of nowhere is the norm. Its an adventure to explore this building and its former inhabitants.

Our Lord in the Attic is a unique attraction offering a fascinating insight into Amsterdam's history. It is very well presented and the historical interpretation is very good! I enjoyed the audio tour and thought they balanced the commentary well - giving the essential facts in the primary audio tracks and then offering you the option of hearing more if... More

We had this recommended by a guide in the Hague, and it did not disappoint. The audio guide is very good and takes you carefully from the front door of the building, up each floor to the hidden gem at the top of the house- the most beautiful little church. Very impressed, and well worth a visit even if you... More

Such an unexpected pleasure in the middle of the Red Light District. Really enjoyed this Museum. We had lunch afterwards at the Cafe and the food was delicious. If looking for a pleasant way to spend 1.5 hours this is a very lovely way to pass the time

This was very interesting, it showed a dutch house as it would have been. The surprise is when you go up to the attic. This was beautiful. I would recommend.

Decided to check this out after hearing and reading some positive things and have to say that the church more than met expectations. The presentation of information was very well handled using the combination of the audio tour and touch screens and as a result I feel like I learned a lot from visiting. The church and house itself are... More

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.
