Directions to Westerkerk
The Westerkerk is one of the most noticeable buildings in Amsterdam, due to the distinction of having the tallest tower in the city. Styled in a classic Renaissance style and completed in 1631, the Westerkerk is also synonymous with popularity for being the final resting place of the acclaimed Dutch painter, Rembrandt van Rijn. With a beautiful dark brick exterior, complemented with creamy marble-laid windows, the Westerkerk looks utterly picturesque, in keeping with Amsterdam's heritage of containing the finest examples of architectural marvels. The spacious interior holds many treats for visitors. You may go and enjoy the fantastic organ concerts that are held here, or go and visit the tombs of the Dutch artistic maestro, Rembrandt van Rijn, who attained the pinnacles of success and acclaim in painting, albeit posthumously. If admiring gravestones and venues for royal engagements is not high on your to-do list, why not ascend the 186-step stairway to the Westertoren, or the Western Tower. You can get the most spectacular panoramic view of the entire city from this elevation.
