Sint Willibrordkerk

Most Dutch churches didn't have to take their surroundings into consideration when they were built. St. Willibrord's Church is a remarkable exception. When it was constructed in 1875 the builders had to take its limited space into account. The result is a church which is much shorter than similar buildings, but also much taller. As far as we're concerned this house of worshipping is the best neo-Gothic church in the Netherlands), which is a city of churches and locals often call it the Big Heavenly Secret. The bountiful inventory of its medieval décor includes three magnificent carved altars and refined woodwork. The light that enters the space via the beautiful stained-glass windows gives the church a mystical quality and the Gregorian chanting at Sunday services bolsters this effect. The acoustics are otherworldly given that the walls are 27m high.
