The Noorderkerk, meaning Northern Church, is a 17th Century Protestant Church, located in the city of Amsterdam. Built in a time span of 3 years, from 1620 to 1623, the Noorderkerk is notable for its unique structure and foundations. From a bird's eye view, the Church resembles a Greek cross, with equal arms from four sides. This octagonal ground plan is what really sets the Nooderkerk apart from other churches. It is also one of the first churches to be built purely for Calvinistic purposes. Tourists will be enthralled by the simple grace of this Church, from the pulpit in the centre of the Church, to its one-of-a-kind design. It's very easy to have a quick look-about as the Norderkerk has enough to arouse interest for any casual visitor, though it won't take up too much of your time either.
