Interesting history and contains the burial monument of William of Orange. The decoration is quite simple but well preserved. A voyage through time

We paid €7.50 to get in. this allowed us to visit the old church as well. It was beautiful, built between 1383 and 1510. Burnt in a fire of 1536. damaged by explosion in 1645. The tower was not finished until 1872. The spire was built in stages, the lowest one in brick, then white stone, then black stone and... More

Beautiful gothic church. Currently under some renovations, but we were given vouchers for free tea or coffee at a nice café around the corner which was a nice gesture. The ladies in the shop area were very friendly and helpful. The information brochure was excellent, as were the informative displays inside the church. Walked the 376 steep winding stairs to...

interesting structure, must be lovely for events and concerts, not sure why there is a charge for such a space. managed to see quite a bit without paying, from the entrance or the shop, having read on various guidebooks about the limited amount of items to see

Nice church to visit. It also had a special exhibit with a local artist. We purchased a Museum Karrt pass here which we used at all the museums in Amsterdam.

A beautiful gothic church in the heart of dam square. You have to go inside to appreciate the architecture behind this magnificent building. Definitely worth a visit.

Very interesting to look round church. The spiral stair case up the tower, 376 steps, was challenging but well worth the climb.

If you just go there, it could be rather boring. Don't forget it's a Protestant church (now) so there are almost no paintings or statues that you would see in churches and cathedrals in the south. So you could get written material or audio tours. But better: There are guides of Delft available that include the church. And then it's... More

Beautiful protestant church, with lots of history - burial place of kings on Netherlands. If you do not mind climbing lots of stairs visiting the tower is totally worth it - great views over the whole Delft!
