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.
