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

This church has beautiful stained glass windows and a cool leaning tower, but we came here solely to see the grave of Vermeer. Seeing the two Vermeer grave markers completed our Vermeer day trip that included seeing three paintings at the Mauritshuis in the Hague...More
We loved mostly the stained glass; they are not the originals, but they have been done with a lot of artistic details. Here you can also see an impressive pulpit, Vermeer's floor stone and the tomb of the inventor of the microscope, Anton van Leeuwenhoek....More
If you have any interest in history, this church is a MUST. I have hardly ever seen so impressive stained glass as in this church. The grave of Johannes Vermeer is situated in this church. Visit is highly recommended!
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.
