The Nieuwe Kerk ("New Church") is a 15th-century church in Amsterdam, located on Dam Square, next to the Royal Palace.

The Nieuwe Kerk is a burial site for Dutch naval heroes, including Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, Commodore Jan van Galen and Jan van Speyk. The poet and playwright Joost van den Vondel is also buried in the church.
