You can see this church from almost all around Dordrecht. The tower is interesting, it has four clock faces but not a real spire in the middle of it.

We made a bicycle tour in the historic part of Dordrecht.During this tour we visite the Grote kerk well known as the "Dordse Dom" This big Church was build in de dark ages and is really amazing insite as well outsite. If you visite Dordrecht you truly must visit this Church.

We visit Dordrecht because it was well known as an old nice city of The Netherlands and we were not disappointed. unfortunately, it was late for a longer visit but definitely we are repeating the visit to this city.

Lovely church and we were just in time to hear the organ play! Lucky us. There are plenty of volunteers to tell you about the history and lots of explanations in dutch too. Nice peaceful place

On a rainy Tuesday this was a great find in Dordrecht. Imposing riverside location. Friendly and welcoming staff. Free entry but €1 guide leaflet in English if required - though very informative. Toilets inside were also very clean and handy on a city tour. Highlights inside were the stained glass windows, separate chapels and organ. A super find!
