This tower church is 98m high, it’s the only part that remains of the ‘removed’ church in the 18th century. Best views of the city are from the top.

Climbing the steps will certainly tire you out but the view over Amersfoort is a rewarding sight. It is not open all the time though.

It is an awfully long way up and a awfully long way down. One has to be quite fit to get up and down. If you can't climb the tower there is still interest at the bottom. A laser marks the point at which it...More
