Historic Gothic church

Well known for its role in World War II and history surrounding John Frost’s attempted taking of the bridge in Operation Market Garden, St Eusebius' Church is the largest building in Arnhem.

We had visited specifically for the spire views where you can look across the city, but happened to arrive on the one day the lift was out of service! Bad luck there. Otherwise, it was great to look around. The restoration is evident after it was decimated during the War.

Nice renovated church with great panoramic views
Jan 2020 • Solo
Nicely renovated church(still not completely finished), with fun activities and lots of background info about the battle of Arnhem/Operation Market Garden.
You can visit the church hall, where you can find the tomb of the Duke of Gelre, Karel van Egmond, 2 church organs, the crypt that is the oldest part of the church(around 1000 years) and that has still bones in it. If you are lucky there could be an exhibition in the church hall as well.
Aside from the church hall you can also visit the tower by elevator. In the tower you can find an interactive game, 2 glass balconies that you can visit, a video animation about the church during Market Garden, some artifacts from WW2, and you can look from the tower(from inside out) on several levels. You also get an audiotour when you visit the tower, which provides you with lots of extra info about the surroundings and Market Garden. You can also spot the bridge from the movie ‘A Bridge Too Far, except when it’s very misty ofcourse, but in that case it is just a 5 minute walk to that bridge. If the weather is clear you can watch all the way to Germany. There is a tower guide walking around if you have any questions, but the staff at the reception was also very friendly and helpful.
All in all you could easily spend an hour of your time in hear.
Make sure you check their website to see what their opening hours are and because the church hall can be closed because of an event or something. But then you can always visit the tower.
Be aware that this is not an active church, but a church building, so there is an entrance fee.

Must see in Arhnem
Jun 2019
St. Eusebius church also known as the Eusebiuskerk or the Grote Kerk, at 93 metres is the largest church, and the largest building in Arnhem, The Netherlands. [1]

Notably the building contains an elevator that was added to the church in 1994, which allows visitors to travel to the top of the spire and view the city of Arnhem from its highest point. More intriguing perhaps, visitors can also enter the crypt at the rear of the church which contains a number of full skeletons lying in state, in the darkness of the church's crypt.

Enormous (now multifunctional) building
Sep 2019
It took over a hundred years to build the original church during the rule of Karel van Egmond, the powerful duke of Gelre in the 1500s. In 1944/1945 the church was right in the middle of the firing line between German and Allied troops. As a result the church was reduced to a ruin. The authorities decided to rebuild and make the Big Church the new landmark of Arnhem again. For this reason the building looks quite new, though serious attempts were made to regain its historical features.

It is now a multifunctional building. I enjoyed the exhibition on the period 1944 - 1945 in the form of photos and stories told by the survivors to children. Excellent lively format. I did not know 90,000 people were forced to move out of Arnhem 'for a couple of days' which turned out to become 9 months! Also unique photos of looting German soldiers I had never seen before.

Entrance fee 2€ (ground floor only) 9€ (including the panorama lift in the tower)

The St Eusebius Church has recently been renovated. There is one service per month so do not expect a religious place of prayer and contemplation. It is a good visit for the art works and the steeple tour. The experience shows you a lot about the history of Arnhem and it is good fun (the glass walk-outs are truly terrifying!)

The church itself wasn’t open but you can go into the tower.
There is an elevator so you don’t have to climb all the stairs
The’re 2 glass platforms so you can go outside the tower to have an amazing viwe over Arnhem and the rest of the green area

Pretty cool

Unfortunately, the church was closed to due restauration work, but we did get to see the wonderful view from the tower instead. The glass-elevator makes it possible to see the church bells as the elevator goes up right between them in the middle of the tower. Moreover, two glass "cubes" have been constructed on the outside of the tower to ensure a first-class view of the city (and the pavement below :D) This is not for those with fear of heights, but I promise you the view is worth it!

It‘s a shame that the church was under construction. Still it shows the great architecture and impressive building complex.
