Lonely Planet review

The Museum Amstelkring hides a secret church. Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder (Our Dear Lord in the Attic), as it’s known, was a Catholic chapel set up c 1578 after the Calvinists seized power and outlawed other religions. Inside you’ll find the city’s richest collection of Catholic art, a labyrinth of tiled staircases, cubbyhole quarters and the unexpectedly grand worship room itself. The museum is being renovated through to 2011, but remains open to visitors.
