This is a beautiful, old and peaceful church with a rich history. It is located near the red light district, which makes it a little bit extra special. It has a large organ and beautiful stain glass windows. Well worth the visit!

De oudste kerk van Amsterdam en tevens de mooiste. Een bezoek meer dan waard!
