For very little money, you can see BOTH the Old & the New Churches. Well worth it! The New is normally worth 5 stars, but the construction & the Delft University student intro week made it noisy & a bit chaotic.

Despite the steep stairs (no elevator, of course), the not-to-cheap ticket and the lack of room for all the tourists (think twice if you have difficulties with it), the tower of the Nieuwe Kerk is the nicest-thing to do in Delft. From its top, the view is magnificent. Very recommended. No high heels shoes.

"Pay" is the Dutchs favorite word. Entrance to the church costs. Also, do not park in Delft. The police control foreign cars all the time and penalties are absurdly high.

We visited the church in August of 2013. The inside was beautiful, and informative. I would suggest climing the steps to the top of the tower. Quite the view from the top, although i didn't realize how hard it would be to pull a stroller up those steps.

It is the major landmark in the city of Delft, with the crpyt of the royal House of Orange Nassau. Renovation work was underway while I was there, but the magnificence of the interior couldn't be missed. There was also an excellent exhibition on the history of the monarchy of the Netherlands when I was there. This church has so... More

It's definitely a must see. The church itself is not remarkable but the William of Orange mosole is really amazing in terms of craftsmanship and beauty of the marble. What I really appreciated was the exhibition about the history of Dutch royal family. Very interesting if you know little about Holland. I believe this is the first attraction to visit... More

This church, located on the market square, is a beautiful Gothic building with significant stained glass windows. It owes much of its importance to its ties to the House of Orange, many of whose members lie buried here, from William the Silent to Queen Juliana. Several of the funeral monuments are more than worth looking at. Those with young legs... More

We didn't visit the church itself, only the tower. It's the highest vantage point in the city and it takes a few hundred steps to get to the top, but the view's definitely worth it. Extraordinary? No, but still recommendable.
