Owner description: The Smallest House in Amsterdam. A must see when visiting the city. Located in one of the oldest streets of central Amsterdam and around the corner of the Red Light district. With its typical Amsterdam bell-gable, this house is a miniature version of the majestic canal-side houses Amsterdam is so famous for. The Smallest House is only 2.02 Meter (6 ft., 7.5 In.) wide, 5 meters (16 ft. 4.0 In.) deep. Some people even say it is the smallest house in Europe! Nowadays you will find here a tasteful coffee, tea and ceramics boutique. And on the second floor you will find one of the most unique experiences in Amsterdam: the smallest tearoom in Amsterdam! In a sphere of privacy and quietness up to five people can enjoy, among others, breakfast or lunch, a modest Thé Gourmand or an Afternoon Tea.

Imagine living in such a tiny house 18th century Amsterdam. Very sweet house, easy to overlook when walking through the Oude Hoogstraat, but definitely worthwhile. Take a look through the window and find out all about its history.
