The visit to the Protestant church of Amsterdam was a very good trip. The view of the city from the tower of the Westerkerk was a treat for the eyes. After this visit, another landmark which we went to visit in the city was the famous Heineken Music Hall.

It is one of the best venues for music in the whole world. The venue has been host to some of the best reputed music shows with amazing lit experiences. The capacity of the hall is 6000 so it is big enough for superstars like Beyonce and Lady Gaga to perform while small enough at the same time for creating a warm experience for all.
The plan and approach of the entire music hall is very well. From seating to body scan and search, everything is just a matter of time. This is a very good venue for those who love visiting music shows and concert. Apart from music shows there are many other events which are hosted by the Heineken Music Hall like stand up comic shows, magic shows, conferences and many other events.

The sound system of the music hall is said to be state of the art. We all wanted to hear some loud music inside the theatre. Unfortunately there were no music shows or concert during the time we were there otherwise we would have attended one of them. This is one of the first kind of an amplified music theatre which we have seen in our life. There are many concerts and musical shows which we attended but never been to a musical hall like this.
There is also a gallery inside the music hall containing pictures and photos of the successful events and shows which have been hosted at the Heineken Music hall. Once we were done with the visit to the Music hall, we went to one of the famous restaurant and cafe of Amsterdam to enjoy the local cuisine.
Our trip to Amsterdam was coming to an end. We decided to visit two more famous attractions of the city before we headed back to our home.
We all got a little sad and emotional after our visit to the Anne Frank Museum. After the visit to the museum we headed for our next place of visit in the city which is the most popular landmark and attraction of the city known as the Westerkerk. Westerkerk is basically a church, which is the largest in the city. There is also a tower known as the Westerkerk tower which is regarded as the pride of Amsterdam.
The tower is a huge 85 metre tall structure which was built in the year 1638. There is also the provision of going till the balcony of the tower. The view which one sees from the tower of Westerkerk is truly remarkable. We clicked many panoramic images of the city from its balcony. It is a municipal property and the national flag of the country is hoisted above the tower.
The interiors of the church inside are very modest and unique. The rich history of the Dutch is very neatly reflected by this beautiful church. It is one of the most revered Protestant churches in the European continent. The entry fee to the church is free while the entry to the tower is charged by authorities of Westerkerk.

It is a nice place to click pictures of your family when on the balcony of the tower. The church is a nice place for those interested in knowing about the religious identity of the Dutch and how the church holds a revered place in the hearts of the Dutch people. There are many famous Dutch people who have been cremated at the Westerkerk. There are many scenes from the bible which are painted inside the church by famous painters like Gerard de Lairesse and Vincent Van Gogh.
The place is very well connected with all the main parts of the city and accessible through taxis, tube and buses. After this trip we went to have some food at a famous Dutch restaurant. The next place we visited was the Heineken Music Hall which is one of the most popular studios and music halls in Europe.
