Béguinage of Amsterdam
Why locals love it
On the square called 'Spui' there is a heavy wooden door that you would think leads to a private area. And it kind of does. 'Begijnhof' is the only inner court in Amsterdam which was founded in the Middle Ages.
Why you should visit it
If you are tired off the crowded centre - or just feeling cultural, open this door and find a tiny oasis of peace and history.
Don't make too much noise, because there are actually still people living there. They would appreciate it.
