Old small Catholic church hidden in a canal house. Surprising! Small museum with cozy atmosphere and excellent explanation.

Our review of Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder
In this canal house is a Catholic schuilkerk stashed where about 150 people could practise their faith. The Catholic faith was ' forbidden ' in Amsterdam. It gives an impression of the house in the 17th century. The hidden church can be found at the loft inclusing an organ. The combination of church and dwelling house gives 'Lieve Heer op Solder’ its charm.
The enclosed leaflet gives excellent explanation about the route in the building. And can be seen. It’s not very spacious, but will give you a satisfied feeling afterwards. It's really nice to ‘have seen 'Lieve Heer op Solder’.
