Bibendum
Though in the centre of the city, this hofje (sanctuary) is a haven of peace. Each of its tall facades (17th and 18th Centuries) is fronted by a little garden, and the whole is organised around an open space and the ancient church of the Beguines (a semi-religious community founded in the 12th Century). No Beguines live here any more: single women, old people and students have taken their places. This is also where to find the oldest house in the city: Het Houten Huys (the wooden house).

    Pros

    Endroit magique et calme au coeur d'Amsterdam... Tranquilité assurée, halte reposante ... Ne pas louper la maison en bois noir. Ne pas hésiter non plus à rentrer dans la chapelle. Surprenant, la campagne au milieu de la ville.
