My review isn't actually for the landmark itself but for the delft, although going to this church and its square is a big part of visiting delft. You should definitely consider this for a day trip from amsterdam, which is a easy to do after...More

A nice old church, full of history. For example, the painter Johannes Vermeer is buried in this church. Four hundred Duch people lie buried here, and you will find their headstones and four have mausoleums.
