  • One of the icons of the city is the Saint Laurens Church sure. The Church is after the devastating bombardment after decades of restoration is old-but also contemporary-glory as a monument to the town. It is the ideal location for contemplation, but also to take note of the history of the city. A glass of fine wine in the Brasserie or on the outdoor terrace is a must! Enjoy under the eye of Erasmus.

  • In the middle of the new centre of Rotterdam is the Sint Laurens Church. Pride left standing after the bombing. Beautifully renovated. There are services, concerts, antique fair ed. Worth viewing/if you visit the market Hall/even 2 minutes by walk .....

  • The Church of Saint Laurentius (Laurenskerk) is a must see when you are visiting Rotterdam. It is the only remainder of medieval Rotterdam. It was built between 1449 and 1525 and miraculously survived the bombing of Rotterdam during World War II. While the city was burning, this church remained unaffected.
  • Very beautiful building. You do have to pay to get inside, however is one of the only buildings left after WWII. Worth making a donation to see inside.
  • Looks like a lovely church on the outside, but I was told I needed to pay, when the door in the front said it was free and if you felt like you could donate.
  • Interesting looking. The sign at the door says suggested donation for entries, but we were accosted by a woman who said we had to pay, so we left.
  • The Laurenskerk is the only building left from the Middle Ages, the rest is destroyed by the Rotterdam bombing during the German Invasion of The Netherlands and Belgium in May 1940.
