Saint Nicholas Church is a grand imposing structure dominated by two identical towers on either side of the ornate stain glass rose window. Behind the tower and centrally located is a domed baroque topped octagonal tower, adorned with a large cross. Rising above the rose window is a statue of St Nicholas who is Amsterdam's patron saint.
The church was constructed in the late 19th century and is still one of the main Roman Catholic practicing churches in Amsterdam. Regular services are held during the week and these include choral and musical recitals. Every Saturday at 5.00pm from September to June, the choir performs the Choral evensong. There is no charge for attending the recitals.
The Church has a spectacular organ, known as the Sauer organ. It was built in 1889 and attracts large numbers of people during the International Organ Concert Series, who get an opportunity to perform on it.
Saint Nicholas Church has recently undergone extensive renovations making it one of the best churches in Amsterdam to visit.
