One of the oldest buildings in the city, the Old Church (Oude Kerk) has been a fixture in Amsterdam since the 13th century.
It's located in the heart of the city's famous red light district and is today a contemporary arts center. The church is notable for its excellent acoustics, its four pipe organs including one dating from 1658, and for having the largest medieval wooden vaulted ceiling anywhere in Europe.
One unusual feature is the floor consisting entirely of gravestones, as the church was constructed on a cemetery. Buried here are around 2,500 people, including prominent local artists, merchants and explorers.Places nearby:
