The Netherlands 2013 Delft Continued

As promised here are more pictures from Delft the city of the Royals.

One of the most exciting things I did in Delft was to climb the tower of the Nieuwe Kerk. The church is the burial-place of the Family Orange. While the sanctuary and royal crypt are amazing the climb up the tower is absolutely breathtaking. From the steeple you can see all the way to Rotterdam and Den Hague. Warning: this is definitely not an activity for those with a fear of heights!

When in Delft remember it’s only 278 steps to the top!

  1. Oh my goodness! I am so proud of you for making that climb, Pastor J! I AM a little scared of heights . . might not have made it! God bless you as you share your trip!

  2. I’m not afraid of heights, and if I was half my age, I would LOVE to make that climb, but if I attempted it now, they would be carrying me (or my lifeless body) down on a stretcher.
    Thanks for showing us what it would be like if we could make it.

    • Yeah unfortunately I am not sure a stretcher would fit up the stairs. I kept reminding myself of that as I was walking up. I would say “Don’t die J. They’ll have to throw your cold dead corpse over the bulwark.” 🙂
