Neighbourhood: Centrum
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.

Once you want to escape the smell of weed in town, just walk in the church and relax. Interesting and small details architecture is in place.

Walk and enjoy ♥️

The city's oldest Protestant church, a nice one but not that impressive just had a look from the outside since it was closed.

This is a church, which I understand is not a church any longer, and is not particularly interesting, although its pretty tower can be seen from many sites around the city.

Zuiderkerk (South Church) is located at Zuiderkerkhof in the central Amterdam not far from Rembrantshuis.

Historically, this was one of the very first Protestant Church built in the city, it was designed by famous Dutch architect Hendrick de Keyser (1603-1611) and is Dutch Renaissance with classical ornamentation. The exterior is attractive, particularly the tower. Interestingly, Zuiderkerk was featured in a painting by Claude Monet during his visit to Amsterdam in 1874.

These days, like other churches around the city, Zuiderkerk has been repurposed as a municipal information centre and venue for exhibitions. Unfortunately at the moment it is also under renovations, meaning it is not open for visitation. Am not sure when it is scheduled to be reopened to the public.

Zuiderkerk is a nice protestant church built in the 17th century. It is currently still under renovation but near completion stage. It is worth to enter this church in Jodenbreestraat to have a look while you are in that area.

When entering the courtyard from the Jodenbreestraat side the church jumps at you, smacking you in the face with its stately luster. Awesome view, peaceful surroundings. Unfortunately under renovation when I visited. Still, worth a looksee.

This is another of the many churches around the city. It is quite nice. It is not an absolute must see, but you should certainly go inside if you are passing by. It will be worth it. It dates to the early 17th century and is said to have influenced those important painters, like Rembrandt and Monet.
