    EUSEBIUSKERK

    by LoriPori Updated Aug 29, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Built in the Gothic style, between 1452 and 1560 the EUSEBIUSKERK is a magnificent presence in the town of Arnhem. The Tower was completely destroyed during the second World War and rebuilt in the 60's. From the tower, which rises to 93 metres, there is an awesome view over the city and it is the only church tower with a glass lift all the way to the top.

    Eusebiuskerk- the Eusebius Church

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being almost completely destroyed during the war, the Chruch was rebuilt and it's tower now rises to the high of 93 meters. This is the only tower in the Netherlands that you don't have to climb by foot. The glass elevator will take you up there in less than a minute. Then you'll be able to observe the beauty of Arhnem and especially the Rhine valley. Don't miss this attraction, after all you don't have to work hard to get up there. Open hours are Tue-Sat 10am-5pm, Sun noon-5pm, closed on Mondays

    The original Eusebiuskerk (Eusebius Church) was built in the 15th century but was completely destroyed just before the end of World War II.

    After the war Arnhem was totally rebuilt including the Eusebiuskerk in 1946. It was completed in about 1964.

    St. Eusebius church

    The St. Eusebius is younger but probably much closer to the image most people will have of a gothic church than the St. Walburg. Note the tall upper part of the tower; it's a modern addition from the 1960's with an elevator inside. This part of the church was the crown on a major restoration in which war damage was repaired and the tower was almost completely rebuilt. In case you have binoculars; take a closer look at the little statues at the tower and the flying buttresses. They were added after the war, and the artist obviously liked Disney cartoons.

    The Eusebius church

    by catnl Written Jul 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This church was built between 1452 and 1560. The former protestant Eusebiuschurch is a gothic triangular cross basilica with star vaultings. The tower of this church was totally destroyed during the Second World War, and the reconstruction changed its appearance radically. The octagonal spire ends up as a square. The tower is now approximately 96 meters tall with a five large and small carillon chimes. The modern glass enclosed panorama elevator makes the tower accessible for everyone.
    There was an exhintion from the world presspictures but we were 2 late to visit, instead we walked around the church wg=hci has many ornaments to see:-)

    Eusebius Church

    by shavy Updated Aug 18, 2014

    The construction of the Eusebius Church began in 1450 and eventually took over a century. During the battle of Arnhem, the church is destroyed to a great extent, but was restored immediately after the war. In the church you will find include the tomb of Charles of Gelre, a very large bells and signs screamed and screamed tables. Currently, the church is used for exhibitions, trade shows, meetings, etc. even a couple can get married here. You can go up to the tower with a small fee of € 2,50 and up high you'll have the view of the city

    This church is a fine example of Gothic architecture. Features of this include the high windows and the beautiful and complex vaults. It is one of the most ornate churches in the Netherlands with hundreds of carved decorations and statues in the interior and on the exterior. The church is a monument. The size of Eusebius church states for more than five centuries the town of Arnhem, and recounts the history of the Gelderland capital from the Middle Ages up to the Second World War and reconstruction.

    Eusebius Church

    by vichatherly Written Oct 10, 2009

    The original church was built between 1452 and 1650 but it was reduced to a shell during WWII. Work began on the rebuild in 1947 and was finished in 1964.

    A second restoration was undertaken in 1981-83 and the belfry was restored in 1992-94. A glass elevator was installed to take you up 73 metres to the panoramic platform on the tower. It closed when we were there so we didn't get an opportunity to take in the view.

    Eusebius-churchtower

    by JuliaMac Written Jun 7, 2012

    The tower of this church is visible from everywhere in the city. if to rise on the lift by a survey platform it's possible to see how Arnhem is beautiful . when I was in Arnhem the church was restored and the photo with a townscape doesn't show all beauty of a look. This church is very beautiful and light inside too.
