Noorderkerk

The Noorderkerk is a 17th Century protestant church situated in the romantic Jordaan neighbourhood along Prinsengracht canal.

It was designed by Hendrick de Keyser in 1620 and completed by his son Pieter de Keyser in 1623 in an attempt to serve the growing population in that area. For years it was visited almost exclusively by the protestant lower class but is today recognized for its striking architecture, especially its unusual, cross-shaped layout with a small tower on top.

Today the church is still actively used for services and there are weekly, mainly classical concerts held on Saturday afternoons between September and June. In the southern annex of the recently restored Noorderkerk an interesting display of archaeological artifacts can be viewed, which adds to the experience of visiting this historical place.

Near the church, on Noordermarkt square, regular markets are held, including the popular organic farmer's market on Saturdays and a trendy second hand and antiques market, which is famous for its cheap second-hand clothes and book stalls.

There are also a great variety of restaurants and cafés in close proximity offering a nice view on the canal inside the beautiful Jordaan quarter.

The Noorderkerk is in walking distance to the Central Station and can also be easily reached by tram and bus.
