The oldest building in Amsterdam – the Oude Kerk (Old Church) still stands in all its glory, following many renovations, of course. The building itself no longer functions as a church, but rather it houses a cultural institution that is in charge of many exhibitions throughout the year. The space is wonderful for cultural events, and it is a favourite location to visit for both tourists and locals alike. Previously, the World Press Photo exhibition has been displayed in the Old Church, as well as the inauguration for the yearly ‘Museum Night’ – so you should check out their agenda online for any interesting upcoming shows. You can also take a guided tour to learn more about the building itself, and climb its tower (also the oldest high tower in the city). Definitely worth a visit (entrance fees are affordable, less than 10 euros).
