The Oude Kerk is the oldest building in Amsterdam and is located in the famous historic centre of Amsterdam; the red light district. The Oude Kerk creates in its programs connections between heritage and art, past and present, and provides...more

14 euros to enter this shell of a church (although it is not now defined as a church but as a museum - but with no exhibits..!!) is exorbitant. To rub your nose in it they charge an extra 2 euros if you wish to...More
Reading some of the negative reviews here saddens me, because this is a truly lovely architectural experience. It's definitely not Disneyland, so don't expect a lot of bells and whistles. The entry fee is on par with all the other attractions in the city and...More
This old church is one of Amsterdam's top 10 sights. I am not sure why.
I only found 3 points for the audio guide. So no information about the place.
Lovely big space and lovely stained glass windows.
Could have provided better information
They charge 12 Euro pp entry fee, and there is a barrier to prevent you from looking inside. This church is stripped of everything, the side chapels all sealed off. This is a total bust. Yes the floor is interesting to see the grave sites...More
As all protestant churches, the interior of the Old Church is rather bare, which makes it easier to see some of the architectural features, especially the roof. The room where the commissioners met is well preserved. It is worth to walk around the outside of...More
Having never made it inside the Oude Kerk in several visits to Amsterdam, but being determined to do so one day, I am glad I had not read these recent reviews otherwise we would have skipped it. I am glad to say that the so-called...More
I very rarely leave a negative review of anywhere but in this case I think it's justified. We were hoping for an interesting visit to this old church but unfortunately we were very disappointed..No atmosphere and apart from a few chairs totally empty. Freezing cold...More
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

The Oude Kerk has two types of tickets: 1 during exhibition periods (10,- full price) and one during the install/de-install of the exhibition (7,5 full price). There's the possibility to buy tickets online, but as said, the lines are normally quite quick.
The restoration of the Oude Kerk was finished in 2013, but it could be that you refer to the install of our exhibition. From the 19th of May there's a exhibition opening by Dutch artist Sarah van Sonsbeeck.
We hope you enjoy your visit!
