Noorderkerk is a small Protestant church in the northern area of Jordaan, along the Prinsengracht. While there isn't much to see within the church, it is interesting from an architectural point of view. Opening hours 10am to 6.30pm (October 2016). This church was built between 1620-23 by Dutch architects, Hendrick and Pieter de Keyser. It is symmetrical and laid out... More

In this church they hold little concerts on some Satrdy afternoons. Most of the time very good musicians. The concert last about one hour. We listened to the Schubert octet bij musicians of the Royal Concertgebouw(concerthall) Orchestra. Beautiful.

Today it hit 28C. So meandering around the Saturday market was very pleasant indeed. However in December for example when the temperatures are 4C, it is a different matter. Regardless it is a chill out type place, less congested than the Albert Cuyt Market in De Pijp.

Located on the prisengracht within noordermarkt square is this protestant place of worship built in the 17th century. A massive structure, quite plain inside with an ornate organ seems to be typically in keeping with this type of church in Amsterdam, worth a visit especially during the farmers/flea market on a saturday.

One of the most important churches of Amsterdam. Unfortunately it is opened for visitors only for a few hours during the week! Moreover, the opening hours differ, when checked in various guidebooks or even websites. We entered the church after Saturday concert to ask the staff politely about one look to its interior. Not only the lady obliged us to... More

This Saturday market is held in a little square near a church. There are lots of bakery goods, cheeses, fruit and vegetables and some clothes and bric-a-brac. The fruit and vegetables are very fresh and there is a large variety of breads and cakes. A good place to stock up for the week. Some goods seemed over-priced to me.

We have been to the Noordermarkt, right outside of the Noorderkerk, many times. This year was the first time the church was open. There was a church group selling coffee inside. We took the opportunity to visit the church. It is very sparsely furnished, painted all in white. We were glad we were able to finally to see the interior... More

The Noorderkerk (North Church) is a wonderful example of the Dutch architecture of churches from the seventeen century. It was built in 1623 by the architect Hendrick Keyser, to be a Protestant church. AS such, it has for instance clean walls, since Protestant churches don't have images as the Roman Catholic churches have. The building has as its centre a... More

Great building but one only sees if from outside. The last of Keyser's buildings it is in stark contrast to the westerkerk down the canal. Saturday and monday mornings are bustling with market. Go then and enjoy the exterior of the church.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
