de Nieuwe Kerk

The Nieuwe Kerk (the New Church). The tower is never completed. Joost van den Vondel and Michiel de Ruyter are burried here. Nowadays the church has mainly a cultural function.

During the coronation of Queen Beatrix in the Nieuwe Kerk, at 1980, squatters were rioting: 'no houses no coronation'.
