  • We had a guide to show us around and it was really interesting. Wonderful big church, almost totally destroyed during the 2nd WW, but beautifully restored.  more »

  • Very memorable location. For four euro you can walk up the tower and view the city from above. You can see all sorts of interesting objects inside including bells and even a piece from a ww2 shrapnel. If you are lucky you can hear the bells right above you play.
  • Interior inside not so interesting but the outside area is beautiful and historical very interesting.
  • Beautiful church but a part of the church was destroyed in 1944 during Operation Market Garden of the allies.
  • A beautiful church, especially the gorgeously lit main tower at night and the creative bell tunes, that are played throughout the day.
  • Just beautiful and adds a lot to many views in the city. Walk around it and towards the river Waal also.
