The Lebuinus Church is among the bigger churches in the Netherlands, ranking behind the churches in 's-Hertogenbosch and Haarlem. Not very ornamental.

Dominating the skyline of the city this impressive, huge church is worthwhile a visit. Its high gothic ceilings, the immense pillars, the decoration: it is a fest for the senses. Recommended!

Worth visiting. Splendid building. Centre of life in the town. A large group of young ladies were receiving their degrees in the middle of the nave and there was an exhibition of architectural plans going on to one side at the same time. The crypt...More

The Lebuïnuskerk stands out in Deventer , This church can be seen from far away while approaching Deventer . It quite dominates while standing at the Ijssel . Inside one may be enchanted by the historical items and graves .

An amazing piece of architecture for sure. High roofs, mosaic art, stone floor, brick walls; everything adds up to old and majestic building. The giant organ is a masterpiece. Felt like I'm inside some other universe. A great experience.

It's a church. A pretty big church, in fact one of the biggest in the Netherlands. And it's very old, the bishop of Utrecht fled to this church when Utrecht was under siege by Vikings. It's a protestant church, so not too many statues and...More

The Lebuinuskerk is a big church with a big tower in the center of Deventer. The church does not have very rich interior decoration, it is rather sober.
