I visited this pristine church, again near the waterfront of Amsterdam. It was so beautiful! There doesn't seem to be a lot of Catholic institutions in Amsterdam. However this seems the be the most beautiful out of all of them. Inside is very remarkable! Will definitely be coming back here in the near future!

It's a nice church That's about all I have to say to be honest I took a few pictures then moved on to the next sights It hasn't got the wow factor that the churches and cathedrals in Paris have but it's still very pretty

We found this by accident on a wet day walking to cruise terminal. It was noon and it had just opened for visitors and we decided to go in to avoid the rain. Walking with your head down, you don't realise what an impressive building it is. Well worth a visit no matter what the weather.

The Saint Nicolas Basilica is really worth a visit when you are in Amsterdam. Located infant of the main railway station this great building is impossible to miss. It grand Neo-Gotic facade is a typical Amsterdam landmark, ones inside you enter in a different world. Gone are the noises from the bustling traffic; welcome to the peace and silence; enjoy... More

One of the most beautiful churches in Amsterdam and also o e of the most unusual in that it's a Catholic Church in a predominantly protestant city. From the great windows to the marvellous statue's, the unbelievable ceiling, the sheer grace of this beautiful edifice, you simply have to pay it a visit if you are in Amsterdam and have... More

It is old and it is beautiful, not the most of the most we have yet seen, but anyway this isn t the issue. In order to enter the Concert one has to book... More

Easy location to just look around, very pretty. Check hours -- I went too early, then just as mass was starting so didn't get much time.

Located across from the main station, this is a majestic church with daily English Eucharist attended by lots of tourists and locals. Check the concert series as it is a lovely environment to reflect and meditate amidst pagan territory.
