[Scenery] This is one of the most beautiful photo spots in the distance. If you are a photographer, please take a moment, because this is one of the collection photos.
[Fun] This is a 17th-century Protestant church built by Hendrick de Keyser (same as the famous Montabaranstor Tower and Montata) and presides over its tomb Inside. It is in the style of the Renaissance and is worth looking at from the outside.
The South Church is also a famous church in Amsterdam, and it was under repair when I went. The Southern Church was built between 1603-1611 and was the first church built exclusively for Protestantism in Amsterdam. The church is not far from the old city gate (weighing house), and not far from the Rembrandt House. Several of Rembrandt’s children and one of his students, Ferdinand Boll, are also buried in this church. Some people say that Rembrandt’s night watch was painted in this church because his studio is not big enough, but this claim is not credible. When the French Impressionist Claude Monet came to Amsterdam in 1874, he also painted this church. The exterior of the church cannot be seen during construction, and the picture of the exhibition board at the door can still tell the general idea. During World War II, because there were too many dead people, it was used as a temporary morgue, but it was no longer used as a church. The main function is the visitor center of the city, as well as holding some exhibitions.
Amsterdam's gay fetish scene has been going strong for so long that it's got sizable old school and new school contingents; Church lies unabashedly at the forefront of the latter. Many nights of the week are themed and have strict dress codes, including Naked, (Z)onderbroek (or underwear), and the somewhat more flexible Kink. Church also hosts Thursday's wild and performance-filled Blue party, one of the hippest queer nights in all of Amsterdam.
From the outside, you would hardly even know it’s a club. Yet, this place is banging to a different tune six days of the week. That’s probably why Church is so popular – different theme parties every night, a changing roster of DJ’s, and a full service to keep you covered when you’re uncovered.
Nice bar slash cruise spot. Small space with a few dark rooms. Not very exciting. €7.60 for a vodka red bull.
