Really interesting to catch this bit of history in the conflict between protestant and catholic faiths. The old house contained a faithfully restored chapel. Cafe and loos excellent.

Ons'Lieve Heer Op Solder is a hidden church that was converted into a museum. It was hidden as a way to get around religious discrimination laws in the 17th century. The church occupies the top floor of an old Amsterdam house, and gives the visitor...More

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,

Hi, the previous answers cover it - good recorded audio explanation in English. I needed some directions to locate the building - it's right down in the red-light end of the street. Have a great time!
