Favorite thing: To the south of the Anne Frank House is the beautiful Westerkerk. The imposing 85m tower dominates the area and can be seen everywhere! On the very top of the tower sits the crown of Emporer Maximillian - a symbol frequently seen in Amsterdam.
This was once only the city's second place of Protestant worship. Designed in 1631 by Hendrick de Keyser it's ornate exterior belies the harsh, plain Calvanistic interior. It is said to be the last resting place of Rembrandt (who had a pauper's burial) although the exact whereabouts of his tomb is unknown.
It's opening times are:
Entrance is free.
Favorite thing: Westerkerkstoren
This 85m-high tower is the highest in the city. It's one of four great churches in the city.
Go up the WesteKerke
Favorite thing: Go up the WesteKerke or however its spellt. It is the tallest building in the city and from here you can see everything - it is a great sight. Tours are all before four, so get there before then.
