Wat je gaat doen
Amsterdam has a fascinating (religious) history that has shaped the city into what it is today. Our beautiful capital is not only famous for its liberal views towards drugs and sexuality, but also for its open-minded approach to religious convictions. This is reflected by its many monumental and iconic religious churches, temples and synagogues. During this 2.5 hour experience I will take you on a scenic, religious-historic walk through Amsterdam’s romantic ancient city center. We will pass some of the most historic and beautiful buildings of Amsterdam. Along the way I will tell you about the religious history of the city, which has helped create Amsterdams's liberal approach towards gay marriage, euthanensia, abortion, drug use, sex work and political tolerance. I will tell you a little about the architecture of the buildings and the role they played in shaping the soul of the city. However, the last thing I want to do is bore you to death with historical facts. The tour will be light and humurous. I will use the religious-historic background mainly as a tool to give you a better insight in the wondrous way Amsterdam functions today.

Waar je zult zijn
Buildings we will check out are the Portuguese Synagogue, the Moses and Aaron Church, the Southern Church, the Christ Church, the Krijtberg, the Old Luthern Church, the Begijnhof Chappel, the English Reformed Church, the Old Church, the Church of Saint Nicolas, Buddhist Fo Guang Shan Temple and Our Dear Lord in the Attic. Some churches are interesting architecturally, others historically, while others yet mean something special to me personally.
