The entire church was taken over by a Buddha exibition. I reluctantly paid to go in but my friend refused. I understand the need to use the space but it was so overwhelming that I just walked round and straight out.

Would prefer a cathedral visit without the Buddha exhibit. It seemed out of place, a blending of two different religions. Maybe that's the point, but I lost it... The stained glass windows are lovely and lit up at night for a better view.

Nieuwe Kerk is an old historical church at Dam Square. It is nice inside with stained glass windows and occasional served as venue for exhibitions. Nice photo opportunity in taking pictures on the facade of the building.

I did not pay my 17,50 but had a peer in from the gift shop! It looks like the Buddha exhibition may be interesting but lots of gauzy hangings block the view of the architecture, which is what I wanted to see.

When I visited in July, it was housing the World Press photo exhibition. If you are looking for a quiet place to pray or to appreciate the history, you may want to think twice before buying the ticket to go inside.

We just came to Dam Square, looked at all of the buildings and then made a choice of which place to enter. We were going to enter the church but there was a World Press Photo 2018 exhibit or something like that so we opted...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
