This is unnecessarily hyped tourist destination when it is just a slope on a hill to return from the Dutch Cathedral and is lined with souvenir shops . It makes a good backdrop for pictures too but that's all about it .

I thought it was an ok trip. Nothing much to see. The first house on the left is open for public, and you can get some coffee and castella.
