Very well presented museum with very informative tour guide. There's not a massive amount to see really and I am really glad I got in for free with the iamsterdam card (you simply have to buy one of these I saved an absolute fortune!). There is a bit of the museum where you have to put on shoe covers to... More

True insight into historical architecture along the canal, early life and religious issues is the 1700-1800s. Museum is technically set up with good displays. Warning--Stairs abound and are narrow and steep so not great for kids or mobility-challenged.

This had been recommended to us but, we weren't sure what to expect of 'a church hidden in a loft'. What we got was not just a fascinating insight into 'Golden Age' Amsterdam history but, a fascinating guide through the story of a canal house and it's workings through the last 300 years or so. Some great views out across... More

If you want to see how "very well to do" people lived and even builded catholic churches inside their own house, this is the museum to visit. The church much bigger than you expected and is marvelous preserved and restored. The house itself below the curch is impressive but not over the top, "real dutch". The museum is very close... More

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.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood 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.
