Amsterdam, The Old Church


The "Oude Kerk", the Old Church is the oldest building in Amsterdam, dating back to 1306. It's situated in the centre, in the oldest part of town in the middle of the Red Light district. In Summer 2015 the famous Japanes artist Taturo Atzu constructed an installation on the roof of the church, "The garden which is the nearest to God". From this piece of art you have a beautiful view on the old centre of Amsterdam. The view from the church tower is even more beautifull.
