Nieuwe Kerk information
The Nieuwe Kerk, is a historical stage for Dutch coronations. The 15th-century, late-Gothic basilica is only ‘new’ in relation to the Oude Kerk. A few monumental items dominate the otherwise spartan interior – a magnificent carved oak chancel, a bronze choir screen, a massive organ and enormous stained-glass windows. The building is now used for exhibitions and organ concerts. Opening times and admission fees can vary, depending on what’s going on.
