"The Westerkerk" Westerkerk - Westertoren Tip by zadunajska8
Westerkerk - Westertoren, Amsterdam: 46 reviews and 78 photos
Built in 1631 as the 2nd place of worship specifically established for protestants this church is elegant on the outside but plain and bare inside (as the Calvinist tradition would have demanded). This doesn't by any means mean that it isn't worth seeing inside - quite the opposite in fact! The interior of the church has a spacious and light feel to it which comes directly from the lack of ornamentation. The church is also reputed to be the final resting place of Rembrandt in his paupers grave, but no-one seems to know where exactly.
Address: Prinsengracht 281
