Popped in for a quick look while in the area and was not disappointed. Beautiful building! You can look around for free or pay to go up the bell tower.

Westerkerk is a reformed Dutch Protestant Church at Jordaan area next to Anne Frank house. One can have nice views from top of the church and listen to the soft sounds of the church bell during your visit there.

The "Westerkerk" is the best known church of the "Jordaan". It is a cavernous Protestant church, where even room was found in a corner for a souvenir shop. The most important fact of this church is, that the famous Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn is...More

The church itself is... a church. Not much more to say. But I gave this 5 stars because you can climb to an observation deck, which is a wonderful experience. You must register to climb to the top with someone sitting at the front desk....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
