De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam

3.0
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.

  • There was an exhibition about Ghandi, King and Mandela, which did not visit. The inside of the building is beautiful.
  • I'd rather enjoy the beauty of the church than a photo opportunity. The back of my ticket had a picture of a killer. I looked at this as I entered the CHURCH of all places. I think this is more about fund raising than anything. Maybe pictures of architecture, landscape, life. We can be reminded daily of how bad life is. Just turn on any news channel.
  • Beautiful building, always amazing exhibitions held! Now on, we have a dream, just go!!
  • Stunning exterior was the main reason we ventured inside. The imposing stained glass windows are magnificent and preserved well. A stunning place of worship in Dam square which is well worth a visit!
  • quite a magnificent looking church, though didn't get to really enjoy the building for its historical and spiritual significance. was there for the world press photo 2016 exhibition. still, would like to spend more time admiring the architecture next time.
