St. Nicholas Basilica, Amsterdam

(4.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Daily mass in English and regular music performances draw many visitors to St. Nicholas Basilica, Amsterdam's main Catholic church. Combining elements of both Baroque and Renaissance building styles, the church sits in the heart of the city and features two imposing towers and a domed cupola. In the 19th century the church served mostly seafarers, who considered St. Nicholas their patron saint. Today, the building represents one of the city's most recognizable symbols and is known for its concert series. Step inside to see the crown of Emperor Maximilian I and religious images painted by artist Jan Dunselman.

  • 位於阿姆斯特丹市中心.是一座天主教堂,內部空間寬闊.華美璀璨,中間擺放著大風琴及耶蘇受難像,雖非教徒亦能深深為其神聖感所震懾!值得參訪.

  • Located in the immediate vicinity of the central station in Amsterdam. A beautiful resting point for the crowds and craziness. It is a Roman Catholic Church with beautiful wall paintings and a beautiful dome. Well worth the effort.
