Bergkerk ,the most important construction of Bergkwartier quarter
Sep 2019
The historical Bergkwartier/ district was built around a big church ,in the 12 th century.The church has a unique location on a hill .In 1206 the bishop of Riga came here to dedicate the church to St Nicholas ,the patron of merchants .The church was reconstructed in the 15 th century into a gothic basilica .Today the nice church is used for cultural activities ,the 13 th century paintings inside are great ,as well as the organ .There were a few visitors inside ,couldn't find any English information about it .I really enjoyed the medieval atmosphere around it .

Beautiful church
Aug 2019 • Couples
What is always sad to me is when I see beautiful churches in the Netherlands that are not used any more as a home for prayers. This is one of such churches. It is now used as a gallery.
Amazing masterpiece, when you're inside, you have feeling that you walk through history.
Really recommend to visit when you are in Deventer.
Deventer in general is not very touristic place, not as popular as Amsterdam or the Hague but it's really worth visiting.
And bergkerk is one more reason to visit Deventer.

Beautiful church in beautiful surrounding

Go down Walstraat with its nice antiques shop and you'll get into the beautiful Bergkwartier with the old church which is not too impressive but still worth a visit.

This beautiful church hosts often art expositions of local artists, music events, etc. etc. Worthwhile a visit for an event, concert exhibition!

This is a nice old church, and probably really interesting to look around. However on the day that we visited it was hosting a tattoo exhibition/convention and they wanted eleven euros each to get in. We passed but it's probably worth checking ahead if the Bergkerk is on your Deventer must-do list.

Disappointment
Apr 2018 • Couples
The "Bergkerk" (Mountain Church) is a substantial church building from the Middle Ages, located on a small hill in Deventer center (hence Mountain Church). I would like to tell you more about this church, but a note was fastened on the door, saying "Vandaag gesloten" (Today closed). As it is "today" every day, I suspect that this church won't be open for the public in the near future. (Compare the sign "tomorrow free beer" at the pub.) So my visit to the "Bergkerk" was disappointing.

We stopped here on a whim. We enjoyed walking about and the nearby area very much. It was our last day here and I hope to come back when I can spend more time.

De Bergkerk is quite old, from around 1200. The church is almost completely empty now. Visitors can admire the floor, walls, ceiling, and the organ. Entry is free. There are some paintings on the walls. I see that there are expositions in the church - that may make a visit more interesting. The environment of the church is very picturesque.
