Originally built in 1408 to accommodate the town's growing number of church-goers, today De Nieuwe Kerk houses art exhibitions in its spacious interior. A fire destroyed most of the original structure, which was subsequently rebuilt in the Gothic style. In addition to its regular program of temporary art exhibits, events, and concerts, the church also hosts Dutch royal investiture ceremonies and royal weddings. During your visit, look for the beautiful stained-glass windows, intricate wooden carvings on the pulpit, and gilded choir gate. Visit the website for information on current exhibits.

De Nieuwe Kerk reviews
I wasn't expecting a large photography exhibition here but it was very good and enough of the church on display for its architecture. Right next to the Royal Palace. Well worth a visit. more »
The graves in the new church are of famous Dutch heroes and very nicely decorated. They themselves make it worth a visit. The bonus was the Suriname exhibition on the former Dutch colony.. more »
It is impressive with stunning stained glass windows and ornamentel figurines and so much more to admire.It is very peaceful too.You are allowed to take photos.Honestly magnificent. Can add the whole new dimension to almost any exposition it hosted at the same time staying calm deep and mystical. Seriously, visit it even if you've already seen what's on show
Simply church with beautiful statue and cemetery of noble families or famous persons, entrance ticket fee 9 Euro. The staff are warmly welcome and hospitality. There are self-audio guide instrument and room for storage the big bag or jacket. Not wonderful or beautiful as I expected. Toilet is not free. If you have a limited time, I suggest Royal palace Amsterdam instead of this or you may skip this place for anothers.
