They say that it is only enough to see the Nieuwe Kerk to understand the history of Delft. In my opinion, it is not enough. The Oude Kerk is a must see, in order to learn about the middle ages.

Not so impressed by this one, as I have visited the New Church just before this! Still worth a visit.

Too bad the main tower is under renovation now that I had the chance to visit Delft (April 2018). Apparently it will take a while so only next spring or summer it will be without all that construction protection that hides the church’s beauty.

There is a lot to to read and see in here. One of the key attractions is the stain glass windows which are excellent and have a story board telling you about each one.
