14/26.- Amsterdam, Begijnhof


An Eden of quiet and peace right next to the busy streets of Amsterdam Centrum, the Begijnhof is an enclosed former convent dating from the 14th century.

You can enter the Begijnhof from Spui or from the Nieuwzijds Voorburgwal. Today it is a residential place, where mostly senior people live and is the only “hofje” open to the public in Amsterdam. Inside the yard are the Chapel and the English Church.
