Got in free with my ticket from the Neuwe Kerk and found a full orchestra giving a concert the sound of which filled the church with an amazing sound. There was also an exhibition of art about the holocaust in the Netherlands.

Amazing visit to this church. The best is the view of the top of the tower after many steps. The church itself worth a visit.

Dark atmosfere, not much to be seen, but for the noticeable funenary wall stone by Canova. William d'Orange who was murdered in Delft, is buried here.

Delft is a very nice city, I'd say it is true old Netherland without hordes of tourists, junkies and cofeeshops. And this one is a representitive of good old Holland. Not bright, but solid and full of history an remebrances. Walk around it and breath the history, the great memories of this important place.

Great for all Norn Iron folk on hol who wish to have their photo taken with old king Bill. Although this church is the old one, the interior looked newer than the new church, or perhaps that's just me being thick. Great scavenger hunt for kids if you ask at the info desk on the way in.

Delft is a typical dutch town with a central square and church. This church is open for visitors and allows one to climb the stairs to the top of the tower on to a tiny balcony. The climb is up an endless amount of stairs in a tight spiral staircase. You must be fit and patient to get to the... More

Go to the top when there is a ceal sky and you will have a fantastic view. If you are claustrofobie may e think 2 as the stairs up at tide.

Very beautiful church. We were able to take our time and view the entire church. Not many explanations in English as in the newer church.

Surprisingly modern after seeing big churches in other parts of Europe and quite beautiful. More worth a visit than the New church, although the ticket covers admission to both. I'll post a couple of my photos that really illustrate the nicest part of the interior. I would not take a train to Delft to tour churches but if you are... More
