The Pinnacle of Worship

This Protestant Church was built in 1620-1631 after a design by Hendrick de Keyser. Westerkerk is located next to Amsterdam's Jordaan district, on the bank of the Prinsengracht canal. The tower, which occupies a unique place in the heart of the people of Amsterdam, bears the symbol of the imperial crown of Maximilian the First of Austria (1450-1519). It was his gift to the city in gratitude for their support of the Austro-Burgundian princes. The tower of Westerkerk has inspired many Dutch songs and poems and remains a symbol of the city.Rembrandt, one of the world's most famous painters, and his son Titus, are buried here.
