Old Church (Oude Kerk)

Interesting
Miraculously spared by fire, the city's oldest church (1306) stands in the heart of the Red Light district, above a delightful cobbled square. Its bell tower is unsurprisingly crowned with an elegant 16C spire, commanding a splendid view of the city. Today the church is a venue for different events ranging from organ concerts to exhibitions and theatrical performances.
