Nieuwe Church, Delft

Church Tourist Spot
Although Nieuwe Church translates to "New Church," this site holds centuries of history. The Protestant church was founded in 1350. In 1584 William the Silent, a Dutch prince, was entombed in a mausoleum inside. This started a tradition of burying Dutch royalty in a private family crypt. The most recent burial was Queen Juliana and her husband Prince Bernhard in 2004. Climb the church tower, the second highest in the country, for views of Delft, The Hague, Rotterdam, and Rotterdam Harbor.

  • The new Church is strongly linked with the history of the House of Orange and thus with Netherlands. The renovation of the Church is not quite ready, so you can come anywhere yet. There is a scale model of the burial chamber of the Royal family and there is a clear historical explanation. The eye-catcher in the Church is the tomb of William the silent. It is also the final resting place of some famous compatriots (under other Piet Hein, Hugo de Groot). The entrance ticket to the new Church also gives access to the old church.

  • Amazing church with stained glass and royal tombs. A combo ticket for this church which includes a climb to the tower and the "old church" costs 8 euro. A separate entry fee for the church only is available. At the time of this writing there was some construction in the main sanctuary. The climb up to the tower is narrow. For those who are on the taller side, be sure not to bump your head on a few beams.
  • I had a great time with my host in Delft. People are so nice here. Definitely recommend this place!
  • Going up the tower of new church is the best attraction in Delft if the weather is good.
  • The view from the top of the bell tower is magnificent. Very recommended
  • This is an amazing piece of architecture and well worth a visit. Make sure you climb the stairs to enjoy the view.

Where to stay in Delft

The most popular accommodations in Delft cluster in the historical town center, a compact area heavily booked on the weekends and during the summer. Make your arrangements well ahead if you wish to stay there, or explore the guesthouses near the main train station if you prefer to travel without prior reservations. The city's long- and short-term rental houses, which often cost slightly more than centrally located hotel rooms, offer an affordable alternative for families in need of more space and privacy.
