Abdijkerk

This is the former church of a women's abbey founded at the end of the 10C. Rebuilt at the end of the 13C in the Gothic style, it has preserved two staircase turrets and a crypt from the Romanesque era. Extended in the 15C, converted at the end of the 18C, it was then restored by Cuypers (end of the 19C). A brick tower striped with white stone stands in front of it. The interior is surprisingly white. The church has a small museum containing the church treasures.
