Amsterdam is wonderful, but most visitors will tell you not to miss nearby Haarlem. Excellent advice!
Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder is a Catholic Church was built on the top three floors of a canal house during the 1660s. At that time, it was prohibited to celebrate mass, so churches like this had to remain a secret.
To do this, they cut a large hole in the top three floors and supported the gap with iron bars.
While a bit strange, the invention and beauty found in the details are quite astounding.
Of course, no beer tasting is complete without friends to share!
