De Nieuwe Kerk (The new Church) in Amsterdam is around 600 years old and a historic burying site for many well known Dutch historic figures such as Michiel de Ruyter. It misses the grandeur of some gothic churches we know from cities like Antwerp but...More

Located right in Dam Square, next to the Royal Palace. I would not go inside unless it was included on some card or tour, or unless you were going in to see an exhibition. They seem to cater to putting on exhibitions and new showings....More

This church was on our list of places to see as it is next to the Royal Palace. We decided NOT to go in on reflection as it had a steep entrance fee and it was hard to see what there was to look at...More

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

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

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
