Create an itinerary including De Nieuwe Kerk
Originally built in 1408 to accommodate the town's growing number of church-goers, today De Nieuwe Kerk houses art exhibitions in its spacious interior. A fire destroyed most of the original structure, which was subsequently rebuilt in the Gothic style. In addition to its regular program of temporary art exhibits, events, and concerts, the church also hosts Dutch royal investiture ceremonies and royal weddings. During your visit, look for the beautiful stained-glass windows, intricate wooden carvings on the pulpit, and gilded choir gate. Visit the website for information on current exhibits.

  • Loved the World Press Photos of the year absolutely stunning. Wasn’t expecting it when I got to the church but what a treat it was! Highly recommend going to it if you able to do much insight and just so much emotion. Really beautiful.
  • Always go there for every year’s world press photo exhibition, one of the best places to show those photos. Simply beautiful in and out.
