De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam

(3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Originally built in 1408 to accommodate the town's growing number of church-goers, today De Nieuwe Kerk houses art exhibitions in its spacious interior. A fire destroyed most of the original structure, which was subsequently rebuilt in the Gothic style. In addition to its regular program of temporary art exhibits, events, and concerts, the church also hosts Dutch royal investiture ceremonies and royal weddings. During your visit, look for the beautiful stained-glass windows, intricate wooden carvings on the pulpit, and gilded choir gate. Visit the website for information on current exhibits. Put De Nieuwe Kerk into our Amsterdam itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Amsterdam.

  • The New Church or Nieuwe Kerk is located on Dam square, next to the Royal Palace. The architecture of all buildings is wonder. I didn't visit your interior.

  • Walked in for the El Greco exhibition. This was nice but not very special. The Church all the more! What a beautiful building inside and the rest that you experience in the middle of the Dam. Great!

  • During our visit to this beautiful church at the Dam located here also turned out to be another exhibition was about Marilyn Monroe. Very nice to visit with many facts and further friendly with many things from her movies. was well worth the visit despite the somewhat spicy entrance fee.

  • Went to Marilyn Monroe exhibition. Wonderful setting in this beautiful historical church. Love!
  • Really cool! I didn't get to see anything particularly memorable, but I hear there's been crownings so maybe you'll be luckier than I was.
  • Beautiful church. Pay attention to the floor tiles. They're grave stones.
  • Nice church hosting the world press photo exibit. Awesome if you can catch both!
  • Always many events in here and of course the royal crownings, for example our King Willem Alexander Oranje-Nassau was crowned in here in April 2013.
