well worth a visit. Every thing to see here is in the centre of town. We had bikes and just left them against the wall and walked around

This is an imposing anglo saxon church built in 1400. It has a large mausoleum for William of Orange and many dutch king had funerals and were buried here. Other than that, there is no much to see, except the view from the tower which requires a steep ascent with hundreds steps

The tower is well worth the climb. Be warned though there are a lot of stairs and they are very narrow. So make sure you are wearing sensible shoes, can manage the climb and not afraid of being in a confined space. The view at the top is well worth the effort and you can see for a long way... More

A huge edifice in the centre of Delft, where the Dutch monarchs have their funerals. Extraordinary mausoleum of William of Orange dominated the church. Remember , Brits, he's not our William of Orange who came over to be king of England: this is the earlier one.

Impressive church with the graves of the Orange family. I went on the tower with 376 steps. It's narrow but nice to watch Delft from above.

If you are in Delft go up the tower of the new church situated on Markt. You have 375 narrow steps to go up but if it is a sunny day, you will be rewarded with one of the most spectacular view in Holland. Price is 3.75 Euro ( maybe it is 1 eurocent for every step hehe ). Do... More

This is a church but the entrance to it with the shop and manic ticket desk makes it feel anything but religious. A means of extracting a lot of money for old rope. The ticket staff were terribly rude and the whole experience outside the church proper was chaotic. A real turn-off.

The entrance fee of the Nieuwe Kerk covers your visit to the Oude Kerk as well, and you can choose if you want to climb up the super tall tower to enjoy delft from the top with an extra fee. There was some renovation going on during our visit, so the staff gave us a voucher for free coffee in... More

We took my parents here as my father used to study in Delft and lived in the shadows of the Nieuwe Kerk. The church itself is a typical protestant church, rather austere however the stain glass windows make up for that fact. They are beautiful and tell an amazing story. The church also displays the story of the Dutch royal... More

Church itself is not anything spectacular, but worth visiting. Especially if you buy combined ticket which allows to climb to tower; and yes - it also includes admittance into Old Church (Oude Kerk). Stairs to tower are really narrow, therefore we never climber to top, as all the time was traffic of people coming opposite way. So we stopped at... More
