Fodor's Expert Review Suykerhoff-hofje

Western Canal Ring Religious Building/Site/Shrine Fodor's Choice

Suykerhoff-hofje. For a moment of peace and quiet, visit the Suykerhoff-hofje and take in its abundantly green courtyard. These houses opened their doors in 1670 to Protestant "daughters and widows" (as long as they behaved and exhibited "a peace-loving humor") and provided each of them with free rent, 20 tons of turf, 10 pounds of rice, a vat of butter, and some spending money each year.
