Special areas will also opened, such as the Kerkmeesterskamer (Church Warden’s Room) and the space behind the largest historical organ in the Netherlands. Six hundred years of history come boldly to life with videos, projections, an audio tour and a daily organ concert.

Daily live music
Just like in the seventeenth century, we offer visitors daily organ concerts from 12 noon to 12.30 pm on the majestic main organ. A special new addition to this year’s programme is a peek behind the organ. Every Friday afternoon after the concert, visitors are invited to view the space behind the organ as part of a guided tour. Also new this year are the special Rainbow Concerts during Pride Amsterdam on Saturday 27 and Monday 29 July, with music by Corelli, Handel, Lully and Saint-Saëns, among others. More information at
