Right by Anne franks house so easy to find. Sadly we visited on a Sunday so the church and the tower was closed but still nice to look at!
Shame TripAdvisor didn’t have the opening times on here hence 3 stars
We only visited here as the clouds burst on our way to Ann Frank’s house. But it was worth the visit. A typical Protestant church - no stained glass, but an organ as grandiose as our can imagine. Hard chairs, but the preacher’s pulpit as...More
We were not able to visit the interior of the church because we arrived in the area towards evening. I had hoped to visit the Anne Frank House and hear the bells of the West Church, the same bells that Anne Frank spoke about. We...More
Weterkerk (or the West Church) is a Reformed Dutch Protestant Church and is located in the western part if the Centrum borough next to the Jordaan neighborhood. It is also located between the Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht canals and is about 50 feet away from the...More
This church is well worth a visit not least because of its connections to Rembrandt and its closeness to Anne Franks museum. We didn't go up the tower because it was closed but we did get to hear the most wonderful visiting German Choir -...More

This beautiful church is one of the landmarks of Amsterdam. It is situated near quite a few attractions such as the Anne Frank house which is just around the corner with lots of cafes and restaurants surrounding it. Its bells chime to the hour and...More
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.

Honestly, I have no idea. The church is large, historic with many layers of subject matter. How long you spend depends on your interests. Most folks spend less than one hour, but if you are keen to understand the meaning of paintings or sculpture you could spend quite a lot longer.
