This is no longer a church and the interior is subdivided into some strange exhibitions. The building is however worth admiring.

Located near the Dam Square, this church is easy to find. I learned that there is some exhibits going and entrance fee is 18'euros per person! I quickly took pictures of some areas of the church that I could see from the Reception Area. Did...More

We wanted to see this (non-functioning) church, but were astounded at the 17 euro admission charge (there was a Nelson Mandela exhibition on) so we glimpsed what we could from the entrance and moved on to the much more impressive (functioning) Oude Kerk, where the...More

We got in this museum for free with the museumkaart. This is no longer a church. Pretty much everything has been taken out. There are no pews, no altars, etc. The outside looks like a church, but the inside has been subdivided into different areas...More

Okay, the New Church is the place a few of the royals were coronated at, but as I looked around, I saw nothing that would make me pay extra to go inside. If you have the city pass, then probably suggest going in, but this...More

Centrally-located, again reasonable entry fee included audio guide. Lovely structure with guided tour of some of the historical features of the city.

Located in the heart of Amsterdam, De Nieuwe Kerk is a 15th century church which hosts many high-profile exhibitions. On a day out in Amsterdam, I decided to visit De Nieuwe Kerk, which is next to the Royal Palace of Amsterdam (Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam). Greeted...More

Growing up Presbyterian and now Dutch Reformed, I expected Protestant churches/cathedrals like Nieuwe Kerk to look a bit plain compared to their Catholic peers, but I was struck by how stark and cold the whole place felt. Not being an art historian, I suspect it...More

This is a church that is significant and grand on its own. However, it has long been converted into an exhibit space that is included in the museumcard. The current exhibit was Royalty and History and it was a bit haphazard. But worth a visit...More

The "Nieuwe Kerk" is usually used for exposition such World Press Photo and many others but also for special ceremony concerning the royalty. We came for the world press photo exposition. Most of the space is used for the photos but it's still possible to...More

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
