The Oude Kerk is home to numerous traces of the past centuries. The monument awakens the archaeologist in you: here, you literally find yourself on the site of the Great Iconoclasm of 1566. Open the doors to the various side rooms and discover the rich history and collection of Amsterdam’s oldest building. Look up, at the medieval paintings on the wooden vaults of the church, and down: the floor is covered with tombstones. The grave of Saskia van Uylenburgh, Rembrandt’s wife, can be found under the small choir organ on the north side. But you can also discover contemporary art, such as the red stained-glass window by Giorgio Andreotta Calò. Would you like to know more about the history, architecture and art of the Oude Kerk?
