Vermeer & van Loeuvenhoek buried here

In Vermeer's first grave here he was buried standing upright! They reburied him later, more generously. But the great lens-inventor got a full tomb! We got to hear an organ... read more

In Vermeer's first grave here he was buried standing upright! They reburied him later, more generously. But the great lens-inventor got a full tomb! We got to hear an organ concert and a choir in full voice--very nice. Had trouble finding Vermeer's grave, tho.

The church itself is not that interesting except for its history. There are no architectural "miracles," stain glass is nice but that's about it. All the information in the church is in Dutch so we didn't really learn anything new. Also, kids under 6 are not allowed to climb the tower which we didn't know. The good news is that... More

The New Kerk is located in a large open and also historical town square! An impressive church with a working golden clock that chimes at least every half hour. We live a five -minute walk from the square and it is charming to hear the chimes 24/7. A must see with the Old Kerk to appreciate the city's history! There... More

Architecturally unassuming (beautiful stained glass windows of course) but a fascinating history of William of Orange (William the 1st, William the Silent) on glass panels. His mausoleum is noteworthy also. Modest admission (3.75 Euros at this time I think) includes the Old Church and a free coffee at a cafe.

Beautiful church, and the climb to the tower is a MUST: for the view and the vertigo experience from the balconies!

If you like a great view and climbing steps this attraction is for you. Well more the climbing of the tower. There are 3 staircases on various levels that take you to the top. The church is not to bad either if you're interested in Dutch history.

The church is nice if you're Dutch and interested in history. If not, don't bother. The Dutch royal family is buried here.

The visit to this church is bundled with the Oude Kerk. As with my review of the Oude Kerk, I was surprised at the entry fee, and very pleasantly surprised with the amount of info provided with which to get the most out of this visit. Below the church is the burial vault of the Dutch royal family and much... More

Just around the corner from the hotel we used and the front door opens onto the Markt. Impressive inside with Willem I tomb and lots of other interesting features.

Make sure to go up the tower to see a stunning view of Delft and the surrounding area. Recommended particularly on a sunny day!
