Trip Planner : Europe / The Netherlands / North Holland Province / Amsterdam / Religious Sites / Zuiderkerk
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
The first Protestant church built in Amsterdam, Zuiderkerk played an important role in the life of Rembrandt, who lived and worked very near this location. Designed by Dutch Renaissance architect Hendrick de Keyser in 1611, the distinctive church features an eye-catching tower and lead-covered spire. Claude Monet painted the building during one of his visits to Amsterdam, focusing his composition on the soaring spire. The church held its final service in 1929, and housed the city morgue during the infamous "Hunger Winter" of 1944. Today the building remains open for private events and offers guided tours to the top of the tower.

Bonita torre y fachada principal exterior. El interior no tiene nada que destacar. Lo mejor admirar su arquitectura y seguir el paseoBonita Tower and exterior main façade. The inside has nothing to highlight. Best admire its architecture and follow the promenadeshow original
計量所の南側で細い路地を入っていくと、建物の間にこちらの教会の塔が見えてくる。アムステルダム初のプロテスタント教会で、建物はかなり高くデザインや装飾が素敵である。Enters on the South side of the econometric Institute, narrow streets and between buildings comes into view is the Tower of the Church. Amsterdam's first Protestant church buildings are considerably higher, design and decoration is nice.show original
