  • Just visited from the market Hall, we looked forward to the dominant church of Rotterdam. A piece of craftsmanship in one word. We have been to the open gate and saw people go in there. We are followed and came in a very nice building. Now lets just someone to the organ that a score was practicing. That made the Church very nicely with this full sound. At checkout had to 2 euro pp. be paid, but with one glance you could see that the Church very rustic looked like. Certainly not a Roman Catholic Church with accessories and paintings. We have listened to the church organ and after his game we are. For the Church is a beautiful little laid out Park with the image of Desiderius Erasmus.

  • Sole surviving building of the 1940 bombardment, this church in the old heart of Rotterdam is a monument. Also a place where exhibitions and concerts are organized.
  • Beautiful church. An iconic statue of Erasmus standing right in front of the church. You can reach it by walking from the rotterdam station.
  • The church was built between 1449 and 1525. In 1621 a wooden spire was added to the tower, designed by Hendrick de Keyser. Poor quality of its wood caused the spire to be demolished in 1645. A stone cube was added to the tower, which proved too heavy for the foundation in 1650. New piles were driven under the tower and in 1655 the tower stood straight again.
  • Impressive that they rebuilt this church.
  • Very nice church during the weekends the church bells will occasionally be used to play music like Queen or Super Mario Theme Song.
