The heart of Amersfoort

The church itself is worth a short visit but it's mainly the square with the market and the cafes where you can hang out on a sunny afternoon drinking a beer or two.

Not as grand as the cathedrals of the bigger towns in Holland, nonetheless, this church is well worth a visit (only€1 entry). The white-washed walls and mural fragments are lovely. Search for the gorgeous clock, and do make the effort to climb the circular stone steps to see the Surgeons Meeting Room.

As Amersfoort grew, this church grew with it. It started small, but with each addition they did crazy things to make it possible. It costs only 1 euro per person to get in, but you can spend a good half hour admiring the inside. For the visitors there are even toilets inside. While we were there, someone was playing the...

Ask one of the volunteers to guide you around. It's a very interesting church, because it's still in use as one and has been for several ages. The architect of the famous Palace on the Dam in Amsterdam is buried here and hes lived in Amersfoort. Nowadays artists are exhibiting their work in this church. This is the onl church... More

A wonderful building which is well worth visiting. If you get a chance of hearing a concert here do go along. the acoustics are wonderful. Very small entrance fee.

Interestingly, this massive church bears the name of a saint, but is protestant (where they have no saints). This is because it was built as a catholic church! They did remove much of the frills and decorations found in catholic churches, but maybe went a bit too far. Although you only pay € 1 entry, the interior is not very... More

Especially like the "Clockman" statue which chimes the hour and half-hours. Massive organ and some remnants of old painted wall murals. Do climb the stairs up to the "Surgeons Room" with old medical relics. Good value €1 entry, and great toilets.

when the clock strikes the hour, be sure to watch for the dragon and the horseback rider who comes out. The bells are delightful.

The formerly Catholic church has become a Protestant Church, so most of the artwork and stained glass has been taken out (so worshippers will focus on the Word). All of which makes the atmosphere a little chilly if you're accustomed to, say, Spanish or Italian church architecture. But well, this is part of Dutch culture, as is witnessed by some... More

From the grey exterior, it comes as quite a surprise to enter the white painted vast interior of the church, which historically has roots of 3 churches. The architecture is amazing, and there are interesting information boards of the history. Has a very interesting painting on one wall.
