Nieuwe Kerk Delft

The choir of the Nieuwe Kerk, formerly the Church of St. Ursula, in the Groote Markt, another Gothic edifice, built in 1396-1496, contains a magnificent monument to the memory of William of Orange by Hendrik de Keyser (1608-19), erected by the United Provinces. The tower is 375 ft. in height.

The vault in the Nieuwe Kerk is the burial-place of nearly all the Princes, Princesses, Kings and Queens of the House of Orange, down to the present day.

Another tombstone in the floor, by the nothern wall of the choir, marks the tomb of Hugo Grotius, and adjacent is his marble monument, by H. van Zwoll (1781).

The Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) is open for visits.
