This is a very distinctive church, old but in excellent shape, and made of red brick. There are well preserved tombs, seats, stained glass, etc. Sometimes churches tend to be same-old same-old, even if attractive, but this one is has a unique flavour

This was our first stop on our countryside tour, and a beautiful place to visit. Gorgeous red brick and full of stained glass windows. The crypts inside of royalty are very ornate and the entire property sits amidst lush greenery.
