The Nieuwe Kerk's Clock
I don't care what kind of clock it is, I "collect" them all. This one, a sundial, is on the side of the church facing Dam Square in Amsterdam, just off to the right of the Koninklijk Paleis (Royal Palace) from yesterday's post.
You can read more about the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) here
, but it dates back to the late 14th century and was Amsterdam's second parish church after the population outgrew the Oude Kerk (Old Church). It's no longer used for church services but for organ recitals and celebrations, like the coronation of the Dutch monarchs!
Like so many things I'm finding here in Amsterdam, I can't find the info I want about this sundial, other than to say it's shown on these 2 stamps from the Netherlands. If I find out more, I'll let you know!
[Today I'm in Amsterdam.]
