A waste of 10 euros! Currently there is an artist installation in which all the windows, including the stained glass ones, are covered in red cellophane type material so the entire inside is red tinted! I couldn’t even read the information pamphlet without a flashlight....More

Oudekerkstoren is a beautifully tall church tower that that dates back to the thirteenth century. The tower was raised in the sixteenth century and stands out as you wander in the vicinity.

You need to have good knies to climb this tower. For € 7,50, you will enjoy the view of the city centre of Amsterdam when it's not cloudy.

The church is being maintained by dedicated society, preventing it from fading away completely. Tower and building still look great from outside. Landmark structure sitting astride the borderline between regular Amsterdam and the Red Light District.

The Old Church that has lost its utility and glory. Stripped almost bare, the interior is nothing to reflect what the Church used to be. The only saving grace is the Bell Tower's historical significance. Definitely not worth the entrance fee.

This historic church steeple was erected during Amsterdam's heyday--the mid-1600's-- and can be seen from almost anywhere in this area. The church itself is rather plain, as most Dutch Reformed Churches are. There is no need for a specific trip there because sooner or later...More

A beautiful church tower, we came upon it while walking through and around the red light district, quite spectacular to photograph.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
