Located just behind the Lakenhal you find this haven of tranquillity. It is a very beautiful cathedral. When we were here there was some contemporary art on display that fitted in very well.

Obvious from the photo that this place was extensively damaged during WW1. Astonishing to see how it looks today after painstaking restorations.
