Every Tuesday from noon until 1pm, the 42 bells of the Westerkerk, one of Amsterdam's most beloved churches, ring out into the city, playing an hour of music - both traditional ringing patterns and tunes you might recognise, from Bach to the Beatles. Go along and sit by the canalside or enter this historic church to see the sights inside (including Rembrant's grave) and experience music all around.
