Old Church hotels
Fittingly referred to as simply “The Old Church” by locals and travelling admirers alike, Oude Kerk is Amsterdam’s oldest standing building and is still used today for some of the city’s most elaborate religious ceremonies and cultural events. Built in the early fourteenth century, the Old Church features a vaulted ceiling that provides some of the Netherlands’ most transcendental acoustics. Oude Kerk’s world-famous Grand Organ was first designed in the 18th Century. Recent renovations to this iconic instrument add the ethereal sound that attracts thousands of admirers from all over the world to Oude Kerk every year.
- Admire the oldest church bell in all of Amsterdam along with several other timeless artefacts in the vaults of De Oude Kerk.
- Explore the haunting indoor graves of local historic figures such as Rembrandt’s wife while admiring the surrounding religious art intended to see their spirits safely home.
- Visit the Oude Kerk Art Festival to see ground-breaking creative work by some of Amsterdam’s most inventive minds.
A variety of public transportation options are available at Amsterdam’s Schiphol International Airport to take visitors anywhere in this historic city. A regular bus service also runs throughout the city and there’s a direct rail link to Amsterdam Central Station within walking distance from Oude Kerk’s front doors. Additionally, travellers can hire cars at the airport for quick, convenient transport around the city. The Old Church’s staff leads guided tours of Oude Kerk and the surrounding area that provide travellers with a first-hand glimpse into Amsterdam’s storied history.
