    The history of the Catholic Church is very special. Inside of a House, with the purpose of concealing, today is very special place to visit. I suggest a visit with an audio guide to enjoy the full descriptions of each room. Bring your camera, you will be amazed by colors.

    Really wanted to see this, but I expected some interesting stories and was disappointed. Ironically, probably due to the tolerance of things hidden and not harming anyone being left alone here! The bu...  more »

    A great place to go if you want to see history of when the Catholic wasn't accepted openly by the people of Amsterdam. A truly wonderful hidden Jewel of the city. Word of advice though, do not visit if you do not handle stairs well.

    This place is really interesting and to think that this church has survived so long. Most of it seems to be original and the restoration work has been is true to the period the church was in use.

    There's more to this than a church in the loft. This is an interesting snapshot of a time in the history of Amsterdam when not everything was as it seems. There's a good 'free' audio guide that takes you through the history of the church and the merchant that built it, along with the house that hid the church from the outside. There are lots of steps and some of them are steep, but having the audio history at each level in the house gives you a break.

    An amazing church hidden in the attic. Visitors must wear over shoes? Lots of steps.

    A typical house church, dating back to the 17th century. but this house church was / is in the attic. you have to be mobile, there's no elevator and its a lot of stairs. But if you get there is 100% worth it. and after your done have a coffee in the cafetaria, and realize that you just passed underneath the street outside and you're now in a completely separate building
