Hotels in Begijnhof
The Begijnhof is a wonderful place in Amsterdam that you can go to relax and get away from the noisy streets and busy city life. This beautiful courtyard is completely enclosed and allows people the luxury of being away from stresses and at peace. The lovely Begijnhof dates back from the 14th Century. There is a group of old historical buildings, such as the Town History Museum, that encircle it and make it a peaceful retreat.
The Begijnhof is close to many lovely hotels in Amsterdam, although the buildings surrounding it are mostly private. The Begijnhof actually lies beneath the old town area of Amsterdam by a meter. Well before the buildings were all around it the Begijnhof was surrounded by water with only a bridge leading to the courtyard. Now you will find many houses all around including the Wooden House. This house is one of the oldest in Amsterdam and is a very popular attraction in the city as well, so you should go see it too while in the city.
