Westerkerk (West Church)

With its tower crowned by a blue orb and crown and gilded weathercock and rising
to a height of 85 metres / 276 feet above the city, this magnificent 17th-
century Renaissance church is one of the city’s most important landmarks and is
where Queen Beatrix was married in 1966, and reputedly the site of Rembrandt’s
grave. Energetic visitors may climb the steps of the tower to see the carillon, and
marvel at the breathtaking views afforded over the Amsterdam skyline.
