About this spot
The Zuiderkerk (Southern Church) is a 17th-century Protestant church in the Nieuwmarkt area of Amsterdam, Netherlands. It was built between 1603 and 1611, and is considered one of the city's most important historical buildings. The church was designed by Hendrick de Keyser, a prominent Dutch architect of the time, and was one of the first built specifically for Protestant worship in the city. The Zuiderkerk was used as a church until 1929, after which it was used for various secular purposes, including as a warehouse and as a studio for artists. In the 1970s, the church was restored to its original appearance and is now open to the public as a cultural center and event space. The Zuiderkerk is also notable for its bell tower, which is open to the public and offers views of the city.
