Centrally located at the Dam Square in Amsterdam, the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) is a much visited sight where you find both history represented in its decorative interior and modern day exhibitions. Since 1408 the church has served a variety of purposes and that tradition continues today.
The Nieuwe Kerk has also been in the news quite a bit in recent years as the location for marital proceedings of the Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima as well as for the coronation of King Willem-Alexander.
As if that’s not enough of a reason to visit, the church is also the location of the the annual exhibition Masterpiece. Previous works belonged to among others Rembrandt and Andy Warhol.
