De Oude Kerk, the oldest church in Amsterdam, is now a centre of cultural activities in the heart of the old town centre. The beautiful light through the high windows, the medieval church furnishing, gravestones (such as Saskia van Uylenburgh’s, Rembrandts first wife) and the magnificent painted wooden vaults, create a unique atmosphere and give away something of the buildings’ unique history. The Oude Kerk was built in different phases and ages and has a total surface area of 4000 m2. There are two organs: a transept organ (1658) and the well-known Vater-Müller organ (1724/1738), nowadays both used for concerts. In summer the Walking concerts take place. One concert in three historic buildings in the heart of the centre of Amsterdam. Like in 2000, in Museum Amstelkring, the Queen’s Palace on Dam square and the Old Church.
Opening hours: daily 11.00 – 17.00
