Beautiful church with a lot of history and the buirial vault of the House of Orange which was worth the basic admission fee but it also covered the Oude Kerk as well and a voucher for a free tea or coffee at a nearby cafe. Did not go up the tower with additional charge.

This beautiful, large church with a very high tower was unfortunately in scaffolding at the time we visited Delft. So we decided to remain on the outside and enjoy the part that had already been restored. Wonderful architecture !

This church is a truly historic place, and they do an amazingly good job of telling you about it. I was really impressed by the displays inside which tell you the history of the church and the Princes of Orange, they were clear and easy to read (and in English as well as Dutch) and told a fascinating and detailed...

This was my favorite part of my whole Europe trip. Not only is Delft an amazing and charming city to see, but the Nieuwe Kerk really offered the experience of a lifetime for me when i got to climb the tower. WARNING: This climb definitely requires a certain degree of physical and mental fitness...once you go up..only you can get... More

An interesting church with a wonderfully interesting history. The spire is reached by about 300 steps but offers rewarding views of the city and the countryside. Not for the claustrophobic, I suspect. Well worth a visit.

Please refer to the old church review if you're reading this about the new church and an entombed king. I still think the interiors of either churches are the wrong way round however the scavenger hunt takes place across both sites.

A very beautiful church. All boards written in English to explain the history of the church and royal family. Worth the time to visit. Ticket paid for both churches and free cup of coffee or tea available at local Bistro.

368 stairs may not seem like much, but in a narrow spiral staircase, it can seem like forever. When you get to the top, though, you are treated to a commanding view of Delft and the countryside all the way to Rotterdam. Just make sure you're in pretty good shape. The church is also well worth the visit. Simply beautiful... More

While the church is undergoing cleaning and renovation, the interior and the tower remain open. You can get some great shots of Delft from the tower, and you can learn quite a bit about the Dutch royal family inside the church.

The of the church was cloaked in scaffolding in June 2015 when we were there. We could not appreciate the exterior, but the interior is worth visiting. It contains the burials within the church of William of Orange and many of his descendants. It is a smaller church than the Old Church. It is a testament of the Calvinist establishment... More
