This Church is a must see on the main square of Delft, because it is represented in so many paintings. It gives a great idea of what Dutch churches looked like after the conversion to Calvinism. Plain, simple and barren. The Dutch Museum card is not accepted. Entrance ticket also valid for the Old Church.

Church is impressive but nothing particularly special by European standards, but walk up the tower was quite an experience. Very narrow and long stone/wood staircase with barely enough room to pass people in opposite direction. Definitely worth doing if you are in Delft

This place is full of character and history. We climbed up the tower, which was quite an experience. Good exercise, but the views of the town are well worth it. Highly recommended

This is typical of the beautiful but austere churches of the Netherlands. An amazing size for such a small town. Take a camera and spend time in its peaceful atmosphere.

The architecture of the New Church is amazing. It took me around an hour to visit it all. You can bring a camera if you like to take pictures. It's a must visit when you're in Delft!

To understand the importance of the main two churches which are of "cathedral" size in Delft a little reading-up is invaluable. The one ticket gains admittance to both the main churches ie Old and New kerks

This is a nice open and spacious building. The refurbishment has been done very nicely. There are information stands to tell you more about the history of Delft. The windows are the highlight.

Well worth a visit to see the resting place of William of Oranges relatives, the old floors have people buried under there.

The view of Delft from the top is breath-taking. Ok, I might be a little biased about the view. I have been to the top of many tower. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

Gothic stripped bare, and a wonderful place to listen to the regular concerts. Little decoration, except for the grave slabs and the windows... but they are some windows... and graves.
