Try to get the whole story, do not just walk in and out. And if you have enough time, climb the tower. The views is impressive

This is one must visit place in your Delft trip. Probably because most of the other buildings are not very tall, this church is very impressive because of its tall spire. You can buy your tickets inside to visit the Nieuwe Kerk. It also entitles you an entry into the Oude Kerk. It costed about 3 Euros. You will have... More

When visiting Delft it is a must to climb the tower of the Nieuwe Kerk! There are three viewing platforms, the highest gives good views over the city. I recommend to climb the tower on a nice sunny day. On clear days you can easily see The Hague, Rotterdam and a large part of the Rotterdam Harbor, it's therefore definitely... More

Sadly I did not allow enough time to fully explore this amazing church and its history. The interpretive historic displays are captivating and very educational. You can buy a money saving Combined Ticket for entry into the New & Old Kerks

The Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) dominates one end of the vast expanse of the market square, with the City Hall at the opposite side. Although called the New Church, to distinguish it from the Old Church, it actually dates from the 15th Century. It is possibly most famous for housing the tomb of Willem of Orange. I found its architecture... More

Very pretty church and well worth visiting when in Delft. The tomb of Willem of Orange, with its crying cherubs and mournful dog, is very impressive. The ticket for the Nieuwe Kerk can be used to enter the Oude Kerk, but you must pay another fee to climb to the tower. We have climbed the tower and it is worth... More

This is an amazing church to visit. There is also a tower which you can climb. It costs extra, and the climb is long and tiring, but completely worth it. The view you get from the top is very, very good. The church itself is very good. The best part is one can visit the old church also with this... More

This church built by the end of 15th century still holds the name Nieuwe Kerk. Not as light and pretty as Oude Kerk, this one is important for the royal burial crypt and tomb of William of Orange, the Dutch Renaissance monument. As most Protestant churches it lacks decoration, details and light. With its massive columns and darker tones inside,... More

Always feels great ehen entering this church. You just feel the connections with the house of Oranje-Nassau. The impressive tombe of Willem of Orange, father of our fatherland makes you feel proud. Eventhough the original decorations of the church have removed when it became the Netherlands Reformed church, it is still an impressive building to look at. It's glass-stained windows... More
