Where the coronations are held

Very interesting visit....not knowing much about Dutch history we found the free audio tour quite informative. Lots of photos from the previous coronations held there.

From outside this old church has a impressive, elegant, conservative look, nothing prepared us for its interior, a fascinating Marilyn Monroe exhibition with original items and good audio tour, contradicting with the church loveky architecture. Surprise in a church.

The "burning bush" decorative fence at the end of the choir is worth a visit. The church has new exhibits every 6-9 months and they are invariably well curated.

We enjoyed our visit as there is a lot to see & the new audio tour (included) is excellent. Aside from the marble funerary monuments and fab pulpit, they also have binoculars so that you can see minute details (particular on the pulpit). Worth the 8 euros. If you feel it is not worth the money, then do not go... More

Externally, you never really appreciate the full scale of the church as it is squeezed within a block surrounded by other buildings. Founded over 600 years ago, this is the church in which royal marriages and investitures take place. Internally, the chief glories are the organ, the largest in the Netherlands, and the highly-carved wooden pulpit. If you can, plan... More

It was a nice church, now it is a museum. I am not sure why we entered, but inside was an exhibition, but not worth for the 8 euros.

This usually cost €8 but with the iamsterdam card and museumkaart it is reduced to €3.50. Definitely worth it with lots of information about the Dutch royal family and the origins of the church. You are given a free audio guide but I found that it didn't add much to what was already on the information boards. It was lovely... More

Lovely church high decorated but would have loved to have seen it without the Royals exhibition as well. Although the exhibition was interesting it was the church I wanted to see. Personally I found the audio tour very long winded and a shorter explanation would have suffice.

We noticed the church right in the square and near the Royal Palace and due to our IAmsterdam card we visited it without having to pay anything extra. The church is simply gorgeous, with lots of info provided in the free audio guide, gorgeous architecture and why the lack of painted walls, yet you have the stained glass at the... More

I don't know if there are different ways to balance the interest of getting money from the tourist and keeping the doors simply open for them. We are traveling with dog. One person stands always outside. We don't spend hours in an attraction, but want to have a "quick look" , an impression, a silent prayer (we don't disturb and... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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.
