Worth the time to visit in your walks around Amsterdam. There is nothing I enjoy more in Amsterdam then just getting out and exploring to see what's around the next corner.

This "New Church" is a very short walk from the central railway station and is surprisingly very close to the "red light district". We preferred the church next to the Anne Frank museum. It is certainly worth walking to if you get the chance.

I always visit most important churches on my trips, but this one was a waste of a time especially if you have limited time in Amsterdam. One look´s better outside then inside.

The 'New' Church is in fact very old. It is located at Dam Square, near the Royal Palace (no blue blooded residents currently, just for banquets and official events), Madam Tussaud (wax museum), luxury department store The Bijenkorf and the monument of Dam Square. We visited the New Church for an exhibition of World Press Photo. The inside of the... More

I recently visited to see the World Press Photo exhibition. The stark images and documentaries provided an interesting juxtaposition with the gothic and neo-gothic splendour of the church itself. The photos taken from the past 50 years and a selection from 2014 seemed to showcase many of the worst elements of humanity with emphasis on war, destruction and the costs... More

This cathedral is so much more pictureque than the Oude Kirke. It is situated very near to the Royal Palace and in the vicinity of a large number of steakhouses and rodizio houses! Worth visiting and taking loads of photos, particularly from the outside! Not too sure of what the inside looks like though!

Most old cathedrals burn down (those blasted wax candles) once or twice, but this managed it 3 times! The first thing protestants did to catholic churches was to strip them of all 'decorations', - second thing was to pull them down. Ask England!. However, with this one the local houses surrounded it to such an extent that the back is... More

All of the large churches in Amsterdam impress with their spaces (as you would expect any big church to do). But there is little in the interior that is exceptional, decoration is sparse, a bit of nicely-executed stained glass, an impressive organ. You can glimpse part of interior from the "ticket lobby" area. Having already paid admission to Oude Kerk,... More

I was disappointed with his place which is little more than a shell. There is some wonderful wood carving and a few plaster works but I cannot think there is a more dreary place to hold the inauguration of the King and Queen. At the time of or visit there was an exhibition by a New York video artist, Bill... More

the building is amazing. The exhibition inside was not as interesting as we expected. The tickets was 8.5 euros which we found really expensive for what they offered.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
