This old church sits right in the middle of the red light district. It’s a nice church. The tower is high and makes for good pictures. And there is some space around it to rest and the rest of the area is pretty crowded.

A waste of 10 euros! Currently there is an artist installation in which all the windows, including the stained glass ones, are covered in red cellophane type material so the entire inside is red tinted! I couldn’t even read the information pamphlet without a flashlight....More

Oudekerkstoren is a beautifully tall church tower that that dates back to the thirteenth century. The tower was raised in the sixteenth century and stands out as you wander in the vicinity.

It has been a nice stroll along the Oudekerkplein seeing the church but the tower was worth the stop. The passage to the tower was not opened when we were there, they said it could be on a Saturday of the month we were around....More

You need to have good knies to climb this tower. For € 7,50, you will enjoy the view of the city centre of Amsterdam when it's not cloudy.

The church is being maintained by dedicated society, preventing it from fading away completely. Tower and building still look great from outside. Landmark structure sitting astride the borderline between regular Amsterdam and the Red Light District.

The Old Church that has lost its utility and glory. Stripped almost bare, the interior is nothing to reflect what the Church used to be. The only saving grace is the Bell Tower's historical significance. Definitely not worth the entrance fee.

This historic church steeple was erected during Amsterdam's heyday--the mid-1600's-- and can be seen from almost anywhere in this area. The church itself is rather plain, as most Dutch Reformed Churches are. There is no need for a specific trip there because sooner or later...More

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
