Stay in De Wallen, the main red-light district, i.e. where the brothels, sex shops, etc. Rembrandt visited the Church often and their children were baptized there. This is the only building in Amsterdam that remains of the original form since the painter went through there. His wife is buried in the Church (Tomb 29), which also has 2500 tombs, under which 10,000 people are buried, among them the painter Vermeer. The roof of the Church is the largest wooden dome in Europe. The boards date from 1390 and have one of the best acoustics of the continent. The remaining traces of Catholic worship are choir chairs (1480-90) and the stained glass Windows in the Chapel to our Lady (1550). Access to the Church is very easy walk, starting from the Dam Square or the train station.show original
