Neighborhood: Rembrandtplein
Overview

The Amstelkring Church, Our Lord in the Attic, is housed in a 17th-century canal house with authentic living rooms on the lower floors and a preserved Roman Catholic Attic Church upstairs. A maze of rooms, halls and staircases with lots of peepholes remind you of Holland's Golden Age. Following the Alteration in 1578 (when Amsterdam became Protestant), Catholics were not permitted to practice their religion in public. These churches were privately owned and designed not to be recognizable as churches from the outside. The building now houses a museum.
