    Nieuwe kerk

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Nieuwe Kerk ('new church'), finished in 1665, is more or less a copy of the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam, which in its time was often considered to be the perfect protestant church. The version in Groningen smaller but taller than its example in Amsterdam.

    The Nieuwe Kerk ('new church'), finished in 1665, is more or less a copy of the Noorderkerk in Amsterdam, which in its time was often considered to be the perfect protestant church. The version in Groningen smaller but taller than its example in Amsterdam. Its ground-plan is shaped like a cross with short arms of equal length. In the corners between the arms are houses, each restored to represent a different stage of their history.
