    Well Worth A Visit

    A beautiful church which holds regular, free organ recitals. Very atmospheric and well worth a look inside.

    free to go in

    This is situated somewhat away from tourist center, and like other churches, not super interesting, but you can go in for free. So if you happen to be in the neighborhood, do go check it out.

    Great view

    We went up the tower as the actual church is closed due to refurbishments, but the view was amazing. It was brilliant to hear the church bells while at the top too. The tour guide was friendly, funny ...

    Unobstructed views - great for photos & 360 scenery of Amsterdam!

    I came here 2 weeks ago on a Monday at 1:30pm & was told the next time-slot was for 3pm, so I settled for 5:30pm (the last one before they close at 6pm) so I could head to a museum first. I paid 9 eur...

    Great view

    We did the Westerkerk bell tower tour during a 6 hr layover in Amsterdam. Tour took about 30 min. Great tid bits about local historical events. A lot of stairs, but was worth the view.

Additional Information

Introduction

Have you heard the bells ring in a site that reverberates with footsteps from centuries past? Westerkerk's carillon has delighted visitors and neighbors since 1658. It is still played by hand daily. This church is such a place of beauty and serenity, Rembrandt was laid to rest there. As Anne Frank bravely hid in her now-famous attic, she could hear the comforting sounds of Westerkerk. Stand in the same spots where wedding guests of Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus witnessed the service. Westerkerk's 36 windows allow you to revel in sunlight, as though the face of God were smiling upon you. Your visit to the Netherlands would be incomplete if you were to miss the delights of this lovely place.
