  • 2 months ago visited the Church and a cup of coffee. A volunteer took the time to tell it to. Usually we are after max 10 minutes though weather outside at a church but this building invites you to view everything on the convenience. There are beautiful paintings, a magnificent organ and other interesting objects. After another Cup of coffee and take on our space. Come back today for the Word Press exhibition. Always very impressive. The (they) Church is a very suitable location for and let all the pictures turn out well.

  • In the great Church of Alkmaar is now an exhibit of the World Press Photo. Very beautiful exhibition with very beautiful, but also all major pictures. This is definitely a must for anyone who is interested. Beautiful location and beautiful design. Entrance is free. I parking: car park above the fire station. From here it is a few minutes walk to the Church. You will find my review useful? Please let me know.

  • 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.
  • Nice building looks old
  • Free attraction. The had a photographic exhibition featuring the people of the asylum seekers centre of Alkmaar
  • The Sint-Laurenskerk is constructed in 1470-1518 and in there is the oldest church organ of The Netherlands from 1511.
  • Free entrance. Impressive.
