Create an itinerary including De Nieuwe Kerk
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.

  • It is rather cramped in this section of the square and difficult to see much of the church, but what it visible of it is worth admiring.

  • Always go there for every year’s world press photo exhibition, one of the best places to show those photos. Simply beautiful in and out.
  • Saw the news photography show there. Very powerful. Definitely go see if you can.
