Worth a visit although much is out of bounds. Resting place of kings and queens. Newsreel on loop of recent state funerals. Will be a must when they finish.

The church is currently under renovation (not unusual in Europe) so be prepared. There is a cost of €4 per person that will get you in both the New Church and the Old Church which is just a 2-minute walk away. They did give us a coupon for a free coffee at a nearby cafe, which was an added treat.... More

This church was nice, but nothing special. It's unfortunate that you have to pay to enter a church. Children are not allowed to climb the bell tower so we unfortunately did not do the climb.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Nieuwe Kerk. It is a very impressive structure. It includes the tomb of William of Orange. All the Dutch royals are buried under the church. A fascinating display illustrates how the caskets are arranged. Videos show several burial ceremonies that took place in the square and in the church. This is a must... More

Wonderfully built, with an interesting history and with a possibility of climbing up the tower (it's hight is 108.75 metres in total, making it the second tallest church tower in the Netherlands) and observing all Delft from the top! On a sunny day you can see not only entire Delft, but also The Hague and Rotterdam. It is definitely worth... More

If you're in this beautiful Dutch city it's worth a quick visit but don't get your hopes up, there's really nothing special to see.

Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) is a Gothic style building and one of the most easily recognisable structures in Delft. It is also a nice attraction to visit for anyone interested in historical buildings and landmarks. Opening hours are 9pm to 6pm (Monday to Saturday), closed on Sunday during our visit in October. Entry fee is €4 per adult and includes... More

New Church but still classical in the style. The second for beauty and importance in the city. Worth to see from the outside, probably not incredible the inside.

We climbed the very narrow stairs up to the top of the tower. From there we could enjoy a splendid view over the old part of Delft and well beyond. Worth the effort!
