““De informatie over deze bezienswaardigheid is van Amsterdam Oude Stad www.amsterdamoudestad.nl”: Amsterdam: Nieuwe Kerk Bijzondere tentoonstellingen in de meest bezochte kerk van Nederland. Eind 14e eeuw, toen de Oude Kerk te klein werd, werd de Nieuwe Kerk gebouwd. De gotische kerk, gebouwd naar het voorbeeld van de kathedraal van Amiens, was gewijd aan Onze Lieve Vrouwe en de Heilige Catharina. De naam is echter altijd Nieuwe kerk gebleven ter onderscheid van de oude Kerk. De meest bezochte kerk van Nederland werd in het voorjaar van 1410 in gebruik genomen. In 1578, toen het katholicisme verboden werd, werd de rijke decoratie vervangen door een protestants interieur: de standbeelden en altaarstukken werden verwijderd of vernietigd en de muren werden wit geverfd. De laatste 30 jaar is de kerk een bloeiend cultureel centrum en is ze beroemd vanwege haar spraakmakende tentoonstellingen. De kerk staat ook bekend als de plaats waar de kroning van het staatshoofd en de nationale herdenking op 4 mei plaatsvinden. In 1980 werd prinses Beatrix geïnaugureerd in de Nieuwe Kerk. In 2002 werd er het huwelijk voltrokken tussen koning Willem Alexander en koningin Máxima Zorreguieta. ”

“Royal Palace (Koninklijk Paleis) With its classical sandstone façade looming over Amsterdam’s central Dam Square, the 17th-century Royal Palace (Koninklijk Paleis) has been a firm favorite on tourist itineraries since becoming state property back in 1936. Designed by Jacob van Campen, the impressive Romanesque construction is fashioned around over 13,500 woolen piles sunk into the ground and is best known for its iconic rooftop statue of Greek titan Atlas, straining beneath the weight of the world on his back. First built as a city hall, the building was transformed into a Royal Palace back in 1808, under reign of Louis I, King of Holland and is still used frequently for state visits.”

“It is a little known art gallery/museum with a cat theme. Very curious place established by the owner in ode to his late cat JP Morgan. An interesting point is - the cats are free to roam around this museum so you might spot them on the radiator in front of the windows or moseying around. It is quite fun and a change from the other known museums.”
