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. The carillon includes 49 bells. The interior is vast and imposing. The Renaissance (16 C) stalls, richly sculpted, are among the most beautiful in the country. The pipe-organ is the work of N. van Hagen (1671). From the top of the tower, a beautiful view of the old town.
