It's definitely a must see. The church itself is not remarkable but the William of Orange mosole is really amazing in terms of craftsmanship and beauty of the marble. What I really appreciated was the exhibition about the history of Dutch royal family. Very interesting if you know little about Holland. I believe this is the first attraction to visit before visiting the rest of the historic town centre because it will provide a very good introduction to the main events of Delft history.

This church, located on the market square, is a beautiful Gothic building with significant stained glass windows. It owes much of its importance to its ties to the House of Orange, many of whose members lie buried here, from William the Silent to Queen Juliana. Several of the funeral monuments are more than worth looking at. Those with young legs and without a fear of heights should climb the tower.

We didn't visit the church itself, only the tower. It's the highest vantage point in the city and it takes a few hundred steps to get to the top, but the view's definitely worth it. Extraordinary? No, but still recommendable.

An interesting church in the center of delft. It was interesting to see how it carried both old and new features. A great view.

The church was nice and there are some interesting and beautiful features. We visited during a time when an exhibition on royalty was on. The exhibition was not very interesting, a lot of text and video...

Worth a visit, but only with a ticket deal or the I amsterdam card, otherwise the ticket prices are too high.
