    Netherland

    I went to Netherland in 1995 and my sister-in-law took me to a place where we passe trough a village which she told me was populated by Amish. Is this possible? They all dressed like the American Amish but I don’t no any details…

      Amish in the Netherlands?

      Hi Ndilokelwa, there are no Old Order Amish anywhere in Europe, including the Netherlands, but there are Beachy Amish and other plain groups in different countries. I don’t know which group this was.

      The only time Amish can be found in Europe nowadays is when they take tours (not common, mostly among “business-class” Amish) typically to visit the countries of their forefathers, such as Germany, Switzerland, France and the Netherlands as well.

      Amish in the Netherlands?

      amish or conservative calvinists ?

      There are a couple of dutch villages where people wear plain dress, especially in the province of Overijsel ; the most famous is Staphorst. People wear plain black dress on sunday and refrain from using cars ; picture taking is forbidden. They are nick-namec as the black stocking and belong to various conservative calvinist denominations that seceded from the national church. A sample picture here I found on the web : http://www.flickr.com/photos/d70w7/5722827170/
