Inside the church

The big church inside is wonderfully light and spacious. The walls are mouldy though. There should be some restauration soon if they don't want to get worse.

Lots of water

The museum sits between a canal (Tuingracht) and another water (which I haven't identified yet). Beautiful view!

Tuingracht

Standing on that bridge and turning east, you get a nice view of the Tuingracht. It must be lovely to live there.

Sluice

Right in front of the town hall there's a little bridge and a sluice. I always find that difference of water level fascinating.
