Medieval Amsterdam (the lesser-known places and stories)

This is the unorthodox Medieval Amsterdam city tour, skipping the touristic highlights. You will learn about those highlights using guides and other apps anyway. This tour is for those who are interested in the lesser-known historical and archaeological stories of Medieval and Late Medieval Amsterdam and includes some local lore and famous places. Have fun!
