Oude Kerk

This 13C church, dedicated to Saint Hippolytus, is reflected in the Old Canal. The three chancels date back to the 16C. The leaning tower of the main nave houses a great bell which, at 9 tonnes, is the second largest in the Netherlands. Note the Renaissance pulpit, which is closely related to that of the Great Church of The Hague, and the windows (1972) by J. Nicolas, in the chancel, the transept and the side aisles (at the far end). Many famous characters are buried here.
