“Amazing church with breathtaking architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We stumbled across this church whilst walking around Amsterdam, we were drawn to the twin pointed towers, when we arrived and walked in we were stunned by the size of the church, it is huge but equally stunned by the amazing architecture all around the church.

The church was built in 1883, the colourful stained glass windows are mesmorizing too, what is also amazing is that the altar, windows, statues and pulpit altogether form a bible image, pretty spectacular.

Whether you like churches or fantastic architecture then this church is a must see, they also allow you to take pictures inside too.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

A jewel box of a church. Beautiful stained glass windows, luminous wooden pews, confessional boxes, golden and sparkly, and most of all, colorfully painted walls. Free, and free audio tour available. A working Roman Catholic church. I am soooo glad that we happened to be staying near by, and wandered in. We spent at least an hour and a half here.
