Westerkerk: From Rembrandt to Queen Beatrix

Rembrandt van Rijn is buried in the Westerkerk, as are several other famous Dutch artists. Anne Frank was soothed by the chimes of the church’s clock tower while in hiding and mentioned it several times in her famous diary. Former Queen Beatrix was also married there back in 1966. Visitors and churchgoers alike now flock to the Westerkerk for its religious services and summer concert series.
