In the tower is a bell that weighs more than 9,000 kilos, which is only rung on special occasions.
There are tombs of scientists and merchants from the golden age. The captains Piet Hein and Maarten Tromp, the painter Johannes Vermeer, the scientist Anthoni van Leeuwenhoek.
The church has three organs and a pulpit from 1548, with the four evangelists Luke (symbolised with a bull), John (symbolised with an eagle), Mark (symbolised with a lion) and Matthew (symbolised with an angel.
