5 Reviews
Old Church (Oude Kerk)
Amsterdam’s oldest church, the Old Church (Oude Kerk), is a curious sight. Consecrated in 1303, the triple-nave Gothic church is surrounded by the window brothels, coffee shops, and bars of the city’s notorious red-light district. Inside are an impressive Christian Müller organ, some scandalous 15th-century carvings, and a floor built of gravestones.
Address: Oudekerksplein 23, Centrum, Amsterdam 1012, Netherlands
