The Old Church is a graveyard
The Red Light District’s Mama Church is nowadays more crowded with party-goers or music and art admirers than worshipers. When you walk inside the church, it is easy to be awestruck by its splendidness. For a Calvinist Joint, it sure has some sumptuous pulpit flair.

There's a secret tunnel under the bar Papeneiland

Papeneiland dates back to the times when Catholicism was still not legal and the Catholics worshipped in secret churches. One of those, was the Posthoornkerk, located right around the canal. Today, there is church by the same name across the corner. There was a tunnel under the canal from the church that led to the bar’s basement to provide for escape when need be.
