*The Oosterkerk ("eastern church") is a 17th-Century Dutch Reformed Church located on the eastern Island of Amsterdam. The Eastern Islands were then the bustling heart of the Amsterdam shipbuilding and maritime trade with the yards and warehouses of the Dutch East India Company at Oostenburg and the shipyard of the Admiralty at Kattenburg. The church was used for the Reformed worship until the building had to be closed in the 1960s due to its construction. In 1974, the Municipality of Amsterdam bought the monumental building for the symbolic amount of one guilder.
Nowadays, the church is managed by “Stichting Oosterkerk”, which organizes cultural activities like a free coffee concert every third Sunday in the month. Because of the symmetrical shape this historic church has a large middle space, which in addition to concerts is also ideal for other activities such as exhibitions, lectures, wedding ceremonies and receptions. The high windows around provide a surprising light. The interior is beautiful and the hard stone floor is heated in winter.
