The West Church (Westerkerk) is one the highest buildings in Amsterdam and one of the few that allows visitors to climb its top.

The view is quite beautiful from up the tower, though can't see very far to the sea. The inside of the building, though, is remarkable. Very traditional, and very beautiful.

Address:
Prinsengracht 279, 1016 Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Price:
Around 6 EUR for the guided tours.

Opening Hours:
Tours are every half hour starting from 10am.
