Two words, Absolutely stunning. The architecture of this church is so beautiful and majestic. Once you enter you’ll find a bunch of candles devoted to the gods. You’ll have to donated 50 cents and offer a candle. Once you enter, you will immediately experience calmness and a positive energy. Everyone is welcome here and that’s the best part.

Absolutely amazing church. Found it by chance and it is definitely the most beautiful in whole of Amsterdam. Totally recommended for both religious and lay people like me loving architecture. Interior is in gothic revival style...

I came to see the church and got a nosebleed. The staff were so very kind and caring towards me! The church is incredibly ornate and very beautiful as well. I am grateful I was there! You should go see this church even if you aren’t in need of medical help :)

Walhalla Memorial

The Walhalla is a hall of fame that honors laudable and distinguished people in German history. The hall is a neo-classical building above the Danube River. The Walhalla is named for the Valhalla of Norse mythology. It was conceived in 1807 by Crown Prince Ludwig in order to support the then-gathering momentum for the unification of the many German states. Following his accession to the throne of Bavaria, construction took place between 1830 and 1842 under the supervision of the architect Leo von Klenze.

The memorial displays some 65 plaques and 130 busts covering 2,000 years of history, beginning with Arminius, victor at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD.
