It was interesting

I would recommend going during Sunday or an evening service for more authentic experience. You can also don't buy tickets if you go during the service

The church itself is beautiful but on the other side, there is a city hall looking like a castle. When I went there, an open market and a travelling amusment park were in the square between the church and the city hall. This church, the city hall in Delft and Delft pottery ae famous.

Absolutely beautiful church, so much history within this building. Well worth the visit if you´re here. The place isn't huge so the length of your visit depends on how long you're going to be walking around. I´d recommend bringing a camera with you.

This church has fantastic architecture and art history. It's centralized to town and one can't miss it as the tower is immense. Not to be missed!

For an entrance price of 4 Euros you can also visit the old church. We only had time to visit this one and you could also go to top for an additional 3 Euros if you combine the entrance and the tower visit. There is a lot of beautiful stained glass. Almost every deceased member of the royal family since... More

This is one of the magnificent church I have ever seen. Its built around 13th-15th century and still in very good shape. Its loaded with history of Netherlands. The top of the church is accessible as well and offers quite magnificent views over the city after climbing about 300 stairs.

If you only have time to visit one church while in Delft make it this one. Rich in history as this is the church where all things royal takes place including where the royal family are buried (below the church but closed to the public). Found this very interesting. The church itself however is actually more impressive from the outside... More

We didn't enter the church but it's quite fascinating to look at even from the outside. The steeple is huge and I loved the different colours of each section.

Nieuwe Kerk means New Church. However the tower was built 1396-1496 so for us it is not so new. The building is located on Delft Market Square opposite to the City Hall. There are a lot of famous people buried in the royal crypt so please pay attention to that.

For four euro you get both the new and old and it's lovely. The new has better glimpses of history. View the exhibits to see into how the crypts are set up, the books and philosophy of the founder etc
