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

Although we didn’t ascend to the very top we did make it to the level just below the clock. Narrow stairs and not much room to pass people going in the opposite direction. That said it was worth the extra 3€ for the climb to...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

€8 entry fee for church and tower and old church. Quite a few interactive information screens and a video of royal funerals. William of Orange is entombed here. Very interesting history if you take time to read everything. Beautiful church and the tower is well...More

The church is beautiful but it is the history that makes this a good first stop. It provides background on Delft but also offers some humorous facts (why did the Princess want to be buried in her wedding dress?). There are engaging, interactive displays that...More
