Begijnhof, Amsterdam Overview

An escape from the commotion and the noise of the city, Begijnhof is one of the few places where you can truly relax. The entry to the inner courtyards is almost hidden, but you can find it if you look hard enough on the Begijnensteeg, near the Kalverstraat.

Begijnhof is a cluster of houses built around a courtyard and garden by Beguines - a group of unmarried religious women which lived in a close community. It was constructed first in the 14th century, and in the centre of the courtyard is the Engelse Kerk, the chapel which also has very elaborate depictions on it's panels. Begijnhof provides a unique alternative to the bustling city life. Spending a while here is truly a blissful experience.
