Delft was The Royal city and if you visit Delft for this reason this is a Must in your list. 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.

Sadly the church was being renovated during my visit, but at least the guides were very clear to tell me that prior to entry. It is so full of history that it is worth visiting anyway and is an impressive building with incredible stained glass windows. Home to the crypt of William of Orange and the Dutch royals, it is...

Worth a visit although much is out of bounds. Resting place of kings and queens. Newsreel on loop of recent state funerals. Will be a must when they finish.

Dear Michael, It's good to hear that you liked the Church, despite the restoration. We hope that you'll visit the Church again when this is finished!! There will be a lot more to see ! More

The church is currently under renovation (not unusual in Europe) so be prepared. There is a cost of €4 per person that will get you in both the New Church and the Old Church which is just a 2-minute walk away. They did give us a coupon for a free coffee at a nearby cafe, which was an added treat.... More

This church was nice, but nothing special. It's unfortunate that you have to pay to enter a church. Children are not allowed to climb the bell tower so we unfortunately did not do the climb.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Nieuwe Kerk. It is a very impressive structure. It includes the tomb of William of Orange. All the Dutch royals are buried under the church. A fascinating display illustrates how the caskets are arranged. Videos show several burial ceremonies that took place in the square and in the church. This is a must... More
