    The Church

    by pieter_jan_v Written Aug 3, 2013

    The central church at Den Burg is the Nederlands Hervormde Kerk church.

    The construction lasted from 1400 till 1452. The church was build on the remaining basis of a former church constructed of peat stone.
    The tower fundament is made of big glacier stones from the Ice time.

    In 1537 the wooden tower was struck by lightning and destroyed. It was replaced by a stone one financed by a tax on alcoholic drinks.

    The interior of the church had been destroyed twice; first by the "Geuzen" and at the end of WWII by the Russian rebelly.

    Up to today there are ongoing restaurations; the last one is to renew the roof tiles.

    Summer Visiting Hours:
    Mo: 10AM - Noon
    We: 10AM - 4PM

    Climb the tower.
