Ronde Lutherse Kerk, Amsterdam

Ronde Lutherse Kerk, Amsterdam

Standing elegantly on the banks of Singel, the canal that formed the outer boundary of Amsterdam in the middle ages is the Ronde Lutherse Kerk. The Ronde Lutherse Kerk once served as a church for the Lutheran order but today is taken over by the Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel.

Built in the latter half of the seventeenth century, the Church was built to replace the Oude Lutherse Kerk (Old Lutheran Church) on Spui. The Ronde Lutherese Kerk is one of the few domed Protestant churches in Netherlands. The distinctive copper dome on the church is noticed from anywhere in the Spui. The unique exterior done in a brilliant Renaissance style was designed by Adrian Dortsman. Although built with grandeur and style, the Church endured many changes along the years. In 1882, the Church had to undergo serious remodeling and renovation because of the damage caused by fire. Over the years the Church’s congregation decreased tremendously which led to its conversion to a concert hall after another fire damaged the structure in 1993. Ironically, the Old Lutheran Church on Spui which was to be replaced by the Ronde Lutherse Kerk is still an active protestant Church.

Today this beautiful monument is not open to public but on request, one can get the opportunity to admire the splendor of the interiors of the Ronde Lutherse Kerk.
