  • Amazingly beautiful church. With this impressive size I would rather call it cathedral. So many details ... I must go back.
  • Free to enter and a tour only costs 2 euros, which goes all the way to the top of the bell tower. This huge 600-year-old church has impressive woodwork and a lot of detail, with huge stained glass windows and nearly-ancient family graves below your feet. Be sure to check out when they are open before visiting! Free parking up to 4 hours nearby. Good food downtown.
  • I love their windows, because they imagine all symbols of the nederlands region. Great
  • Really beautiful church. It's not restored like new, which is something I really liked about it. It feels huge for Edam and the stained glass was well-explained. We were not able to go into the tower, which was disappointing.
  • Nicely kept,enjoyed to talk to locals. Very interesting.
