De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam
(2.8/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • New Church landmark, which does not take a lot of time, its possible to visit at any time of the year. New Church allows us to assess not only monumental sights of the Netherlands, but also from time to time become visitor varying exhibitions/expositions.

  • For the elderly among us a woman who is always in our thoughts. Very worth it. First do the tour and finally to watch the movie, which takes almost an hour.

  • 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.
