Visit the Hoornder church
donderdag 12 september 11:00
Which can. Koster Chris Peeters gives guided tours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 11 am and 4 pm (except on public holidays or when the church is occupied). A great opportunity to taste the special atmosphere in peace. The tours are provided from church center "De Hoeksteen" (next to the church).
The beautiful white church of Den Hoorn is perhaps the most photographed church in the Netherlands. Already in the ninth century a church was built here, on a boulder clay from the last ice age, so relatively safe for the sea. Between 1406 and 1425, the current church was built on the foundations of this first church. In 1604 the interior was destroyed by the Watergeuzen. The choir part was demolished in 1641 and the nave was closed off by a wall five years later. On that wall you can still find the year 1646. But the church itself is much older! The tower has been used as a beacon for shipping for many centuries.
So love and sorrow have been shared in this special place for almost eleven centuries. And the beautiful little cemetery around it has been buried for eleven centuries. There are also regular special concerts, both classical and modern. The church can also be rented for weddings and concerts. Mail for information with to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 0222 316 361.
Also in De Hoeksteen (next to the church) are nice exhibitions regularly.
