Oude Kerk

From wooden chapel on the IJ to impressive church. The Oude Kerk has been a place of connection for seven centuries, nowadays of heritage and art.

Seven centuries ago, the story of this church began, when it was probably founded as a wooden chapel in a hamlet on the river Amstel. The IJ flowed up to the church where skippers bathe there for a preserved cruise. No one could have thought that the chapel would grow into an imposing church over time. One of the most impressive Gothic church buildings in Northern Europe. Over the centuries, it is a place where more than 20,000 Amterdammers are buried, including Rembrandt's first wife, Saskia van Uylenburg. After a major restoration between 1955 and 2013, the Oude Kerk is nowadays a place that connects heritage and art, past and present. You see contemporary art that enters into a relationship with the cultural-historical value of the church.
