From the outside the church looks fabulous. Once your inside you cannot feel the church anymore. It has no atmosphere. Totally not worth the visit.

This is the same as Grote Kerk which is also listed on this site. The crypt markers on the floor are among my favorites I have seen in an old church. The clock on the tower is lit at night, as well as marking every hour with chimes.
