De Waalse Kerk, or in English, The Walloon Church, is a beautiful building right in the heart of old Amsterdam. The church has been in this position since 1578 and still has a pastoral function. The modern-day functioning also includes many superb cultural events performed on a stage inside this iconic setting. In fact, since 2015, the expansion of cultural offerings has proven itself to be a very successful undertaking. The common and unifying themes of the church include music, culture, live performances, the French language and contemplation. See The Waalse Kerk cultural agenda on the official events page.
