  • Nice old church. It is no longer in use as a church. It is used to organise events. The view from the top is very nice. Furthermore, there is a room used by the board of the church from the 1700's that is very beautifully designed. Also, the place has a watertap point.
  • During Corona measures, the main part of the church was open with the cafe as part of the main hall. There was a swing and it was really fun and very cosy. Now, the church has an entrance fee of 5 euros and the cafe is a separate room. I brought friends to enjoy the lovely experience and it just wasn't there anymore. The girls on the cafe were lovely but it wasn't the experience I'd previously had where families and friends sat together enjoying the main church hall together.
