Nieuwe Kerk, Delft Overview

A breathtaking and imposing structure, the Nieuwe Kerk is one of the most popular landmarks of Delft.

Literally translating to 'New Church', the church is anything but new. This 600 year old church hosts the tomb of nearly every member of the royal family of Orange-Nassau since William the Silent in 1584, in the famous mausoleum designed by Hendrick and Pieter de Keyser. There are two sections of the crypt, the newer one was used for the first time in 1822, and the older one is under the tomb of WIlliam the Silent. The Royal Vault is not open to the public, and is only accessible to members of the royal family. It's historical importance aside, the church is a truly marvellous work of architecture. It's gothic style is absolutely pronounced, and the tower forms an integral part of the cityscape. On a clear day, from the top of the tower you can witness views as far as Rotterdam.
