The Nieuwe Kerk (‘New Church’) is a church that is situated in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The 15th-century church was built after the Oude Kerk became too small for the rising population of Amsterdam. After a number of fires from its opening to the 17th century, the church was rebuilt to a Gothic style. It again underwent a major renovation in the late 19th century with Neo-Gothic styling added. The church is owned by the Nationale Stichting De Nieuwe Kerk Foundation. It is the burial site for Dutch Naval Heroes. It is no longer used for church services and is today used as exhibition space.
De Nieuwe Kerk is located on Dam Square. It is a 10 minutes’ walk from Central Station. Nearly all trams to and from Central Station stop at Dam Square. If travelling by car, head for the car parks close to Dam Square.
