Conference Dinner (25 Juli 2024)

Embark on a virtual tour through the "Nieuwe Kerk" by clicking on the picture above.

Located on Delft Market Square (Markt), opposite to the City Hall (Dutch: Stadhuis), the Nieuwe Kerk is a Protestant church in the city of Delft in the Netherlands. In 1584, William the Silent was entombed here in a mausoleum designed by Hendrick and Pieter de Keyser. Since then, members of the House of Orange-Nassau have been entombed in the royal crypt. In 2004, Queen Juliana and her husband Prince Bernhard were the latest to be entombed here. The private royal family crypt is not open to the public. 

When visiting the New Church, uncover extraordinary treasures, changing exhibitions and a stunning, age-old interior. There are many exquisite clocks dating back to 1659, and an additional bell in the church tower measuring 104 centimeters in diameter. The church itself is an elaborately designed architecture with twenty-two columns which surround the marble tomb of William of Orange. Legend has it that the small statue of a dog at the prince's feet starved to death following the tragic death of its owner, the prince. All around the church are memorabilia from the Dutch Royal family including paintings, and stained-glass windows. If you are visiting the church in the summer months take advantage of the church tower access which lets you climb 380 steps for an amazing panoramic view for miles in every direction.
