    Begijnhof is a former convent enclosed in a large courtyard. Now it contains a church along with private houses. It is open to the public for only limited hours so time your visit appropriately

    The Wooden House in Begijnhof is the oldest house in the city and also one of the last two wooden houses in Amsterdam. The other wooden house, I believe, is on Zeedijk.

    The tranquil Begijnhof, near Spui, was one of my favourite parts of the city. It contrasts greatly with the busy Kalvertoren and other nearby areas where everything just goes much faster.
