Overview
More
Stevenskerk, inspiring meeting place for art, culture and contemplation. Construction of the church started halfway the 13th century. In 1273 the church was consecrated by Albert Magnus, the Bishop of Cologne. Of this Roman Gothic church the groundwork and the most Western bays of the ship remain. Extensive construction took place in the course of the 15th century, among others the choir and the chapels. In the 16th century work was done on the transept and small part of the ship. After about 1650 construction stopped, which left the church unfinished. The tower was fitted with a new clock floor in the 15th century. During the bombing on Nijmegen February 22nd 1944, a large part of the tower collapsed. The South-Western part of the church was heavily damaged. Also in the period during the Second World War where Nijmegen was on the front the church incurred a lot of damage. After the WWII the church was thoroughly renovated.

We were amazed to find a small plaque on the wall of Coventry's Cross of Nails. Huge church with interesting bells chiming the hour. Excellent exhibition of wooden angels on display.

Just walking around this grand church leaves on awestruck. The architecture, statues and stained glass windows are a testament to the tradesmen that built such a structure and the congregation that financed it all. Good to see it still being used as a place of...More

To get to know more about the history they give tours through the church and dungeons, in summertime you can climb all the way up into the tower and have a great view over the City, other moment they organize concerts (classicel)

We visited a marvellous concert by Navarone. It was magical in this wonderful church. Without the concert it is a very beautiful church to visit.
