  • The only complete example of an "illegal" Christian church in the Netherlands. The Church is located on the top floor of the housing (You truly can't believe it is there if you are outside), but all t...  more »
  • I visited this hidden Church and I was amazed by what I have learned so much about the Church itself on the way that people lived at that time.

  • A House that never seems to end. Meaning they are three houses together in a. Very beautiful and special. With the characteristic of objects still well kept, like some narrow and curved Walnut staircase. You can admire the works of 15 and 16 century, including a gorgeous wood triptych of 1530. Not to mention the old organ located in the upper part, where was located the Church hidden. It is fascinating that period of history and artistic. Everything else is worth seeing, I will not dwell too much with my review. Good vision.

  • An interesting visit to get an impression on how people lived in the city in the 17th century, thanks to the well made audio guides. It is super impressive to see how they managed to build and hide this church into the old building.
  • Visited here a few years ago when the church was still being renovated. Even more stunning now it has been fully restored. Very strange experience going from the clinical white entrance into the old building. Well worth a visit.
  • Well thought out and interesting museum. Really enjoyed the video at the start. Great fun to walk through all the little rooms and up and down the staircase to suddenly find yourself in the church that occupies three floors.
  • Absolutely worth the visit. It's amazing to see the very large church inside what appears to be just another Amsterdam house.
  • A remarkable and very beautiful church in a very unusual setting!
