An interesting church in the center of delft. It was interesting to see how it carried both old and new features. A great view.

The church was nice and there are some interesting and beautiful features. We visited during a time when an exhibition on royalty was on. The exhibition was not very interesting, a lot of text and video... Worth a visit, but only with a ticket deal or the I amsterdam card, otherwise the ticket prices are too high.

So much history within this church. Make sure you go to the visitors center to purchase tickets. It is cheaper to buy a package ticket to visit the Old Church and the Vermeer Exhibit.

This is an impressive church, even if you’re not particularly interested in seeing the mausoleum of William of Orange. There are a lot of fine stained glass windows; my favourite is the William III and Mary window. The entrance ticket also gives admittance to the Oude Kerk (which is even more impressive) even if you are planning to visit it... More

We enjoyed the stained glass windows, and historical connections with the Dutch Royal Family. There was a temporary art exhibition of photographs and ceramics on the theme of faith and prayer.

I'm not a religious person but the simple beauty of the church was inspiring. The political story of the fight for freedom was well worth visiting as well.

Beautiful cathedral worth a day trip from Den Haag. Easy to get to via public transit. Quintessential small Dutch towns with small canals and bicycles, this Cathedral is the center of it all. Enjoy people watching from the main piazza when you finish.

The new Church is magnificent! I am neither a history buff or a stained glass buff, but appreciated it nevertheless. Do not miss the climb of 376 steps to the top of the tower. You can get the tickets at the shop at the church. Do not go if you are claustrophobic or do not like climbing spiral stairs. But... More

I wanted to enjoy the silence of this enormous church in town, but it was very busy. It is a petty that it is allowed to talk and flash in this church. And it is under recontruction...
