“Peaceful church”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

This imposing church is, in common with many Dutch religious buildings, designed for preaching so the interior is whitewashed, spacious and calming. Admission is free (although there is a charge to climb the tower - which closes at 4pm). There was also a surprisingly pleasing display of modern art works when I visited.

If you want to have a good view of Dordrecht and surroundings, go and climb the tower. It's worth it!

“Majestic building that dominates the skyline of Dordrecht”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Unfortunately this church was closed (only opened in the weekends in winter) and a part was in scaffolds. But I loved to watch De Grote Kerk, a majestic building that dominates the skyline of Dordrecht

“Great Church you should'nt miss!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Beautyful church with colourful windows and two impressive organs, the Kam-organ, romantic, and the Bach organ (2007). Guided tours also possible and recommended! This church has around 60.000 visitors a year, so be there!
