The area
Address
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.

There is an architectural quality to the outside of the building but inside it is quite splendid. Huge vaulted ceiling. Ornate stained glass windows. Richly decorated spaces. Certainly worth a visit.

What a gorgeous church! I was wandering around on my own one night and came across the Jesuit residence. I was taking a picture for my uncle and a dear friend, both of whom are Jesuits. And then I saw the church was open. So I went in to pray for a while. They were closing up, but let me stay as long as they could, and I was so grateful. The church was there right when I needed it.

We stayed for part of the Sunday mass. If you are a Catholic, I highly recommend you visit a Catholic Church and stayfor a mass in Europe. Experience is nothing like back in the US. The church is located in De Straatjes area of Amsterdam, where the famous Dutch houses line up the canals.

I dont really understand why this church isnt that famous among the attractions of the city - its extremely beautiful inside, the decoration the engraving the colours..There was a feeling of tranquility, it felt really good..We are Muslims so it was clear we didnt come to pray but the priest was very welcoming. A woman asked us not to sit on the chairs because a prayer (or something like that) was about to start but another kind man insisted that we do and gave us candles to hold..A very underrated place, I think its for this reason that entrance is free, which surprised me at the time but made me feel lucky!

We found this church and an extremely helpful docent who spent about 20 minutes showing us around and pointing out the major works of religious art.

The interior is much more interesting than the other churches we visited and an added bonus was, it was free!

Amazing example of neo-gothic architecture. Beautiful church with a very welcoming staff. They give amazing tours FOR FREE. No matter your reason or relationship with God or churches, you will feel welcomed. This is indeed a special place worth a visit.

Westerkerk is often recommended as a place to visit due to the Westertoren clock tower that, once climbed, offers aerial views of the Jordaan neighborhood and Prinsengracht. However, with an a fee of €7 to climb the tower and an interior that some may describe as uninspiring, an alternative may be sought.

Walk 12 mins towards Singel to find De Krijtberg Kerk - A Roman Catholic church from 1881. De Krijtberg Kerk may not have a clock tower to climb but it's Neo-Gothic interior is far more impressive and dramatic. We were astounded by it's lavish and colourful decor, painted and gilded wood carvings, and many, many statues. Westerkerk pales in comparison.

Entry to De Krijtberg Kerk is free, and opening times can be found on it's website krijtberg.nl

Just in luck. The church is open. Some churches don’t have real candles anymore but I’m in luck, here are candles which I can light. The rays of sunlight hit the stained glass. It all looked amazing. Very beautiful.
