Definately worth a visit if your in Delft. Just had a major renovation,so everything clean and sparkeling. The Dutch royal family are laid to rest here, so lots of information about their history. There are plans to build an extention which should be completed soon. Entrance fee 4 euro's but you can then also visit the old church free. Also... More

Any visit to the beautiful city of Delft should include a stop at the historic New Church. The church's name, of course, is misleading: Construction of the magnificent church tower, which sits on one end of Delft's central market square, was begun at the end of the 14th century! Inside the church is the imposing mausoleum of William of Orange,... More

I can't give a great opinion this time since this church is closed in Sundays and couldn't get it. The building is very nice to see from the outside, you can definitely take some excellent photos of it during your visit and it's quite difficult to avoid it. It's right in the middle, next to the market and the stadhuis.... More

The new church has a fascinating history, it has the Royal tombs below it. The Gothic character is all there with the height, tower. The tower is a fun climb, not for the unfit. The ticket entitles you a visit to the old church, its worth the time, to go to the old church to just experience an older quarter... More

You can climb the tower to get a commanding view of the area. There are three rings you can stop at to take in the scene. To get to the highest one you must climb 370 steps but it's worth it!

Well worth the visit. Good displays and information. Royal tomb was really interesting and the videos of recent royal funerals showed how important the church and the city are.

Climbed the tower and the view is worth it. The staircase is fairly narrow in places but they do only allow 60 people at any one time. The worst part is having to pass people going the opposite way!

Like many Netherlands churches, there is little left of its original ornamentation, thanks to actions taken during the Alteration, although it must be said the interior is nonetheless quite lovely. What stands out here is the history within, especially the burial tomb of William of Orange, along with many other Netherlands notables also buried there. We found the printed information... More

The central point on a large square in Delft. The church is an impressive building inside and out and a very historical point for visitors

My wife and I toured this cathedral in Delft first which was probably the play considering the near 400 stair climb to the top. 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
