I can't believe any tourist or casual visitor would actually check this out unless they were staying in a hotel here, but this street always makes me smile. Numbers 20 to 32 are known as "the seven countries" because they are built in the architectural style of houses in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Russia, The Netherlands and England.

Aletta Jacobs (1854-1929), the first woman in Amsterdam to go to University, and be awarded the academic title "doctor", lived in this street.
