Discover the history of De Nieuwe Kerk
Experience the famous Nieuwe Kerk (1408), Amsterdam’s church bestowed with a royal function. With its wonderful monumental interior that has been existing as such for centuries. Discover medieval elements such as frescoes, angels and tombstones. In the 17th century, impressive parts were added; for instance, the brass choir screen, in front of which the wedding ceremony of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima took place as well as his investiture as King, and the huge temple-like pulpit. The choir screen and the pulpit are masterpieces by Johannes Lutma and Albert Vinckenbrink, respectively; they were friends of Rembrandt’s. Another Dutch Master, Gerrit Jansz. van Bronckhorst, painted some of the beautiful stained glass windows and the enormous organ. It is the largest historical organ in the Netherlands, after a design by Jacob van Campen. Not to miss are the tombs of Holland’s seafarers like Michiel de Ruyter. And also, a number of Dutch writers are honoured here with a commemorative stone.
