The great church or ‘Grote kerk’ is 500 years old. To celebrate, we have created a stairway so you can finally admire the view enjoyed from the church at a height of 40 meters. This is as close as you will get to heaven in Alkmaar. You can also enter the church through a window, where adorning the vaulted ceiling you will find the magnificent painting The Last Judgement by the renowned painter Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen.
Note: buy a combi-ticket! For only 7,50 euro extra you can also go to the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar + the altarpiece by Maarten van Heemskerck in the Grote Kerk. These two extra tickets are valid until October 2018. Only available by online ordering! The Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar and the Grote Kerk are closed on Mondays; Stairway to heaven is open 7 days a week.
