About the building
The Oude Kerk has been renovated and expanded multiple times over the centuries. Its original interior was lost during the Reformation, but it has still kept its hand-painted wooden roof after all these years. Some of the stained glass windows date back to the 16th century. Rembrandt's wife Saskia is buried in the Oude Kerk.

Exhibition space
The celebrated Dutch composer Jan Sweelinck was a resident organist here in the 17th century. Today, the Oude Kerk frequently hosts exhibitions and concerts.
