Grote of O.L. The Vrouwekerk

Interesting
The present Protestant church (1460-1502) was built in the Brabant Gothic style. The massive, square tower, unfinished, is crowned by four clock faces, while the vast and imposing church interior (108m long) boasts 56 pillars. Note the richly sculpted Renaissance stalls (16C), among the most beautiful in the country, and the pipe-organ which dates from 1671. Beautiful views of the old town from the top of the tower.
