After you have admired the Begijnhof, a bonus is a short visit to the English Reformed Church, situated in a corner of the Begijnhof. The interior is severe, to be expected from a protestant church. The tourist is welcomed by a member of the staff,...More

It was closed during my visit, however, the chapel was opened. I took outside pictures of this church, inside pictures of the chapel, and those of the statues near by. Hoping it would be opened before I leave Amsterdam!

Actually a pretty old church, and has had an English service dating back to the 1600s and the Dutch uprising against Phillip of Spain. Very welcoming, and faithful teaching. Highly recommended. They will even share some of the history with you.
