If you are tourist, you really can't avoid this area. The church is nothing much to look at inside, but all around, lots of interesting things to look at.

The church was hosting an art installation for several months, until April 2020 which involved blackout of the windows and just a few candle-lit stands. As a result it was virtually TOTALLY DARK and walking was hazardous especially for anyone with difficulty walking; the floor slabs are uneven and dangerous. We were told that photography is allowed! Oh yes, in the dark? None of the lovely architecture could be seen at all. We were charged 15 euros each for entry to see this total nonsense. Don’t visit until and unless they get rid of this un-Christian trick.…

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. There is no pamphlet or display about the history of the church. Nothing. There was also a loud group of young girls taking crazy photos inside and being loud. I thought the bell tower would make the admission fee worth it, but was told by the employee/volunteer that a separate organization runs that for an additional charge! Too many other historical structures to see in Amsterdam, don’t waste your money here! Ridiculous.…

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.
