De Krijtberg is a Roman Catholic Church along Singel Street but during our visit there, it is closed and we have no chance to see the internal part of the church. Just wait for next time.

Church is beautiful, the English service was lovely. An organist, a cellist and a single awesome vocalist produce accompanies one of the best church experience I've had. Highly recommended.

In Amsterdam is such a big variety of churches. This one on the Singel is often closed when I pass by. But this time, we were lucky! The architecture is beautiful inside. Next time I’ll check the schedules on their website.

Looking at the outside of this church, you would not expect the space to be so ornate and beautiful inside. Look at the chandeliers, and notice the delicate metal work. You will want to sit for a few minutes to take it all in. This...More

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
