About
Stevenskerk, inspiring meeting place for art, culture and contemplation. Construction of the church started halfway the 13th century. In 1273 the church was consecrated by Albert Magnus, the Bishop of Cologne. Of this Roman Gothic church the groundwork and the most Western bays of the ship remain. Extensive construction took place in the course of the 15th century, among others the choir and the chapels. In the 16th century work was done on the transept and small part of the ship. After about 1650 construction stopped, which left the church unfinished. The tower was fitted with a new clock floor in the 15th century. During the bombing on Nijmegen February 22nd 1944, a large part of the tower collapsed. The South-Western part of the church was heavily damaged. Also in the period during the Second World War where Nijmegen was on the front the church incurred a lot of damage. After the WWII the church was thoroughly renovated.

Climb!
Jul 2021
The big, central church, made more remarkable because it is built on a hill. You can climb the tower, which is a bit of a challenge, but it is well worth it.

Went to a concert there. It is stunningly beautiful and as big as a cathedral.
Dec 2019
We went to see and hear the Royal Nijmegan men's choir with Amira Willighagen. It was a great evening. The choir members are so friendly and helpful. Amira was absolutely out of this world. The church was a great setting for the event. It is as big as a cathedral and stunningly beautiful

Interesting church
Nov 2019
This isn't a particularly large church. You have to pay to get in but there isn't a lot to see. There is an tomb in the middle of the front of the church with an interesting story around it.

The Catacombs
Aug 2019 • Friends
An entry fee of Two euro was just implemented. It will be used for renovations. Ask at the desk for a tour guide who can show you the catacombs. Fascinating!!
The church is beautiful, 3 organs and chandeliers. I love this church.

Impressive church
May 2019 • Couples
The Stevenskerk is an impressive part of the skyline of Nijmegen. The interior is simple and beautiful and is a lovely site to see. Unfortunately we did not have time to make the climb to the tower, however it is something we would like to do the next time we are in Nijmegen.

The Spire
Jul 2019 • Friends
I’d really recommend a trip up to the top of the church tower. The entrance is around the corner from the church proper, and you have to go up a narrow staircase. This is really not for anyone who dislikes heights or confined spaces, but the views over the city are spectacular! There are some interesting pieces from the church’s history too.

Nice visit
Jun 2019 • Couples
We went here as we were headed to the city market. Place is very nice and lots to see inside. We also went into the crypt downstairs and saw the coffin of a prominent lady there.

Thanks a lot for your kind review, Steve D! You saw the grave and coffin of lady Catharina de Bourbon, Duchess of Gelre, who was a prominent patroness and benefactor of Stevenskerk. She died 550 year ago at may 21st 1469. Every year there is a tolling of Catharina's Bell at her day of death.
