Owner description: In the middle of the Market you will find the new Church in Delft. This church dates back to 1300 and is famous for the tomb of William the silent and Royal crypt where most members of the Dutch Royal family are buried. In the Church is a scale model of the crypt. You can also climb the Tower of the Church and once at the top you can enjoy a wonderful view of Delft and the surrounding area.

For me this is the best church that I visited in Netherlands. Expansive structure, sculptures, Gothics and presentation of information make this tourist friendly compared to other churches that we visited. Tomb of william of orange is the most unique piece of art to see in this church. Comparatively there is lot of effort to provide information using interactive multi media.

This is a magnificent old Dutch Reform Church built between 1383 and 1510. The tower was built between 1396 and 1496. This according to the plaque next to the front door. Located right on the square it really stands out. The day we were there the door was locked so we could not go inside.It is an amazing structure.

Beautiful cathedral in Delft. William of Orange is buried there and there are many other artifacts of tremendous interest. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful and elegant and imposing. this is what i can describe this church. From the distance it really commands authority, this is how i feel.

It is so nice to have a wide and bigger open market square so that the whole length and height is perfectly seen. That is when there will be no stalls during market days whatever is the season.

This is worth the stop for a visit to the beautiful Delft and the neighborhood.

When we were in Delft in August, we did not pay to go in but when it was free during Monuments Weekend, I went in and enjoyed the videos of 3 Royal funerals, plus other short films along the route round the the tomb of William of Orange, giving some history.
