Begijnhof and the Wooden (oldest Amsterdam) HouseBegijnhof and the Wooden (oldest Amsterdam) House - Flowers, serenity and a medieval atmosphere in the heart of a modern city. A small rural square in the center of Amsterdam hidden behind the gables of the Spuisquare. A lawn with high trees, flanked by centuries-old houses and a little medieval church.

The Begijnhof was built in the 14th century as  a place of residence for pious women. The oldest house of Amsterdam, with a wooden gable from approximately 1475, can be found at number 34. The entrance is the ‘Gedempte Begijnensloot’, a lane between the Spui and the Rozenboomsteeg.

The Begijnhof is open to the public daily from 9am until 5pm and entrance is free.

Location: Begijnhof/Spui
