Begijnhof is a beautiful courtyard located right in the heart of Amsterdam, and offers a beautiful resting spot in the midst of the city. This quiet and stunning place was built in the 14th century by a sect of Catholic nuns who never became ordained by the church but spent their lives teaching and helping the poor. Begijnhof is one of the oldest courtyards remaining in central Amsterdam and is surrounded by many historic buildings. Check out the Begijnhof Chapel, hidden behind a discrete facade, and the English Reformed Church. This is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon or to escape the busting city for just a few minutes.
