In the middle of the Market you will find the new Church in Delft.

This is the burial site of William of Orange. It is filled with information, and is a beautiful, yet simple church. The tower was a good climb, very steep with stairs that are two-way, but really only work one way! Still a fun climb with...More

William of Orange (d.1584), who led the revolt against the Spanish that ultimately resulted in freeing the Netherlands, and all of the royal family since then, are buried here. There is an interesting exhibit on their history, Be sure to pay the extra 3 euros...More

Closed for tourism on Sundays. Otherwise, open Monday through Saturday. If you happen to be there on a clear day, it's worth it to climb the tower for the view. If overcast or rainy ... don't bother with the stairs. The vitreaux are beautiful. It...More

Ticket also gets you into the Oude Kerk, which is more interesting, and has Vermeer's resting place.

Although I live close by, I never visited the Royal tomb before. It was very impressive and we learned something about Dutch history on the go.

It's worth seeing this church which has most of the royal family buried within it. If you are going, not afraid of heights then climb up the tower to the top. The views are definitely worth it. The view to the Town Hall and other...More

This church is a good introduction to Dutch history since the time of William of Orange. The royal family is interred there in a private crypt below. There was a creative mix of multimedia presentations (most from different perspectives of players at the time) and...More

Although I am not a big fan of churches, this one won over my heart. It is very pretty and historical, and it offers a great view to the city of Delft. Totaly recommended for everyone.

But I did not think it was worth to pay to climb up the tower, specially considering the weather was cloudy and dark. The size of this church is impressive.

At a minimum do the climb to the top. Views are amazing, it's a forced workout, and once you are up top you'll be on a narrow ledge that's a bit more exciting than most church tower climbs. Views are amazing as well.
