All reviews bell tower beautiful church tower tour buried here anne frank house west church burial place big church degree view small fee old church guided tour stained glass great view of the city quick look steep stairs worth the effort
The first morning we were in Amsterdam, we took a tour of the Westkerk's bell tower and climbed to an amazing view over Amsterdam. It was fun to ask our host to point out various city sites. This gave us a great lay of the...More
We didn't realise you had to book a guided tour slot (should have checked Trip Advisor!) so turned up expecting to be able to go straight up. However, we did sign up for the guide as Adrian was very welcoming, his humour infectious and you...More
An interesting Renaissance church with an extremely high bell tower. Here is buried Rembrandt. Unfortunately, during our visit, the church was closed and we could not enter inside.
Nearby is Anne Frank's house.
As it was renovations on the church when I was there (and until november 2019?) I only had acess to the tower which was what I wanted anyway, to go up for the view.
I think it was about £9 for a half hour guide...More
Very nice church ⛪️ ringing on many bells 🔔 , located in same area as famous Anne Frank house. Many tourists waiting around for attraction or just enjoying life on canal. Place where famous Rembrandt is buried
Really pleased with our guided tour to the top of the church tower. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Must see view. A special thank you to our guide who retrieved my bank card from between the cracks in the floorboards at the...More
Located very close to Anne Frank’s House, you’ll find Westerkerk, a parish church found within the Canal Belt in Amsterdam. It has the highest church tower in the city which stands at eighty-seven meters and is adorned with a crown.
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Honestly, I have no idea. The church is large, historic with many layers of subject matter. How long you spend depends on your interests. Most folks spend less than one hour, but if you are keen to understand the meaning of paintings or sculpture you could spend quite a lot longer.
