  • In the centre of Alkmaar you find this lovely church. You can't miss it! If you're lucky weather wise, and the sun shines through the beautiful coloured glass, you can really feel this holy place. 
  • Several times already visited the large church. This last time at a concert by Pieter Jan Leusink and Jan Vayne. And good acoustics. Only the climate control in this historic building is not optimal (to get).

  • The biggest church in Alkmaar, it's open to visitation during the week. Its not in the best state of repair, but still a nice example of an old European church. The music playing when we toured was John Lennon's "Imagine", which I thought was either ironic or thoughtful in the modern Northern European view of religion.
  • Free entrance. Impressive.
  • Free attraction. The had a photographic exhibition featuring the people of the asylum seekers centre of Alkmaar
  • Nice looking church, to bad got no time to go inside
  • The Sint-Laurenskerk is constructed in 1470-1518 and in there is the oldest church organ of The Netherlands from 1511.
