more oude kerk

Oude Kerk presents a long hidden art treasure: seven historic side rooms, including some spaces that were previously not open to the public. Open the doors to the various side rooms – the College Room, the Mirror Room, the Board Room, the Holy Sepulchre, the Iron Chapel and the library – and discover both the rich history and the collection of the oldest building in Amsterdam.



about the oude kerk

The Oude Kerk is the oldest building in Amsterdam. The monumental church is situated in the middle of the Red Light District. Today, large-scaled and site-specific installations by contemporary artists take place within the ancient walls, while also honoring the building and the history of Amsterdam.

The programme includes unique exhibitions of (inter)national artists, performances, concerts and debates.
