Lonely Planet review
Near the Prinsengracht's northern end, this imposing Calvinist church was completed in 1623 for the 'common' people in the Jordaan. (The upper classes attended the Westerkerk further south.) It was built in the shape of a broad Greek cross (four arms of equal length) around a central pulpit, giving the entire congregation unimpeded access to the word of God.
This design, unusual at the time, would become common for Protestant churches throughout the country.
Noorderkerk hosts a well-regarded Saturday afternoon concert series.
