The entire experience was beautiful and I am really glad my wife got us to visit Delft while we were in the Netherlands. I took a picture of a 270 year old bible in a 500... More

Get the Delft Card which allows entry into all the major tourist sites. Represents very good value. Church itself is historic for all sorts of reasons.

The church is absolutely gorgeous, from the grounds outside to the insides. Impressive and gothic, worth a visit.

Going to the top of the Nieuwe Kerk is a must. Not suitable for everyone though. Steep narrow and windy staircase up. And two way! Nice view from the top. The church itself also very impressive steeped in history. Recommended and affordable

The church is beautiful but climbing up to the tower is a must. Beware...this is not for everyone as there are many steps up and the staircase is very narrow. In all honesty I felt a bit light headed even though I easily did paragliding. The new and old churches are different and a combined ticket together with the tower... More

Our self-guided tour of the Gothic Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) was very impressive. We enjoyed reading the posted information that explained the history of the structure and The Netherlands. We learned about the iconoclasts who chiseled off the statues inside the church. We saw the graves in the floor and the magnificent tomb of William of Orange, the father of... More

Such a lovely church to visit and a very impressive structure with lots of history about it. I recommend buying the small guide book and reading it as you walk around to get a better feel for the history. Well recommended as part of a visit to Delft.

Wonderful church. Worth the climb to the top for the great view, and a fascinating collections of graves inside on the floor.

The entrance fee include both old and new church. The new church is the burial place for the royal family of Holland. There are some interesting tombs. Worth a visit!

Interesting church still in existence since the Middle Ages. Boards throughout the church tell the story of William of Orange and the royal family today.
