Anchoring one end of the main square of Delft, the Nieuwe Kerk is only new in the sense that it was built a few hundred years after the Oude Kerk. The church is renowned largely because William of Orange (1533-1584), hero of Dutch independence, is...More

The Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) is an important landmark in Dutch History. This Protestant Church is the tomb of William The Silent, the founding member of Dutch Revolution against the Spanish Empire. His descendants have been entombed here. The church has the 2nd highest clock...More

The church is very interesting and it has a mausoleum that is impressive. In addition, you can climb the tower (300+ steps) which gives you stunning views of the area (you can see Rotterdam and The Hague); however, the spaces are very narrow. The entrance...More

Excellent presentation of this historic church with the tourist in mind. Historic timeline with videos, lovely touch to have the faces smiling & frowning to attract attention. For me what was missing was a sense of the spiritual, a peaceful corner to pray, marking this...More

Multiple signs list the tower opening until 17:00. Yet the rude woman behind the front desk informed me at 16:05 that “today is not a normal day” and the tower closed at 16:00. No apology. Nothing. No explanation or answer as to why the sign...More

Make sure you pay for the tower and the church, it is worth it. Yes there are a LOT of narrow steps to the top, and you have to squeeze around people going the other way. The walk up was not fun but the views...More
