Definitely do the tower tour, great perspective of the city from the top. We went early in the morning when they first opened and were the second group to go up. The space is very cramped and I believe they only take 4-5 people up...More
This is well worth a visit on a trip to Amsterdam if you can pull yourself out of the bars
Amsterdam’s oldest Parish Church which is located within the Red Light District but don’t let that put you off. The inside of this church is...More
What a lovely little church with no restrictions on time to browse. Just staring at the ornate leaded windows was awesome. The hanging boats and twisted staircases are awesome. The original Church toilets are still there, so make sure you use them! They're weird! Awesome...More
It is quite expensive to get in but we had the Amsterdam Card and this gave us free entry. A very impressive church, good architecture and windows. You also get to play with the mellotron, a unique organ.
We headed towards this church from the hotel & got there after it first opened. We basically had the church to ourselves! The oldest church in Amsterdam with amazing ceilings. Contains side rooms - one with Rembrandt’s signature on display from his wedding banns. Currently...More
If you are interested in old European architecture this is a good place to spend some time. The entrance fee includes use of a prerecorded, self guided audio-tour which is very well produced and interesting.
Oude Kerk is quite an old church! It is so old its beginnings go as far back as the 12th or early 13th century. It changed identities over time but it has survived a very long and turbulent history. Amazingly it is not a sight...More
There are better places to visit and to spend your money on in Amsterdam than the Oude Kerk.
The area is fun, and it is beautiful, and being there for the noon music is fabulous, but npot worth the trip.
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

The Oude Kerk has two types of tickets: 1 during exhibition periods (10,- full price) and one during the install/de-install of the exhibition (7,5 full price). There's the possibility to buy tickets online, but as said, the lines are normally quite quick.
The restoration of the Oude Kerk was finished in 2013, but it could be that you refer to the install of our exhibition. From the 19th of May there's a exhibition opening by Dutch artist Sarah van Sonsbeeck.
We hope you enjoy your visit!
