Next to the Royal Palace, you can see the rear part of the New Church (Nieuwe Kerk), a large Gothic construction built at the beginning of the 15th century and used for religious ceremonies during the coronation of the Dutch monarchs, due to the presence of the Palace nearby.

The interior, brightly lit by the many Gothic windows, is today also often used for art exhibitions. The work carried out by Jacob van Campen after the fire in 1645, when the building became a Protestant place of worship, is clearly recognizable. The most important furnishings, all crafted around the mid-17th century, are the pulpit, the organ balcony, and the brass gate that closes off the choir.
