Although Nieuwe Kerk translates to "New Church," this site holds centuries of history. The Protestant church was founded in 1350. In 1584 William the Silent, a Dutch prince, was entombed in a mausoleum inside. This started a tradition of burying Dutch royalty in a private family crypt. The most recent burial was Queen Juliana and her husband Prince Bernhard in 2004. Climb the church tower, the second highest in the country, for views of Delft, The Hague, Rotterdam, and Rotterdam Harbor. Put Nieuwe Kerk on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Delft road trip website.

  • The view is amazing ! You can climb to the top of the church and go all around. They are some landing so you can see the mechanism of the clock and the old bells. Just be prepare for the stairs, it takes a little time and effort if you’re not use to it The inside of the church is beautiful as well
  • Beautiful architecture and pipe organ. One price gets you into the Old and New Church. We went to both and had a cheerful welcome both places. Check website for concerts. History of the royal family is also interesting.
