The Nieuwe Kerk dominates the centre of Delft and holds an important place in the history of the Netherlands as the final resting place of the Royal family in a private crypt. Unfortunately, however, it is currently undergoing major renovation so there is only limited access inside. The tower is also closed. It was still a pleasant way to pass... More

One of the most beautiful Kerk and a must see in this beautiful town. Amazing location and nearby cafes and restaurants for a nice meal and drinks in the evening with friends and families makes it perfect day out.

Visit the church tower to get stunning views of Delft and the surroundings. It's worth the effort to climb the stairs.

If you're in Delft, this church is a must see. Just be ready with your cardio because you need to climb the narrow wooden staircase to the top of the tower. For a minimal fee, the aerial view of Delft is more than you pay for. From the tower, you can take your endless selfies. Just be careful not to... More

Sorry to say this was very disappointing. Major renovation work is going on and is very intrusive. Also it was very cold inside which did not help. The number of interest point was limited so I would skip until work is completed. However we also received a complementary coffee voucher for the inconvenience.

Worth to climb up and see the panorama, please do it with good weather and you could see the overview of Delft. If you are student, you will have student discount for ticket. And the souvenir is really cheap, you could have a look also.

Royal family in the line to Throne are buried here, know that the family crypt with the most recent buried is not open to the public. If you have no interest in the Royal family, visit it at least to... More

Great historic place to visit and to climb with an amazing view over the city. One can see everything there is for miles. Like the ouden Jan and the university of Delft. A must visit for everyone going to Delft

Climbing to the top will give you a great view of the area. Would definitely recommend when visiting Delft as it can be done in a short amount of time and costs really little!

A must see while in Delft. It is currently undergoing a renovation but still well worth a visit. Both the gift shop and entrance fee accept credit cards.
