Wanted to see this beautiful building from the inside and we decided to attend the church service on Sunday. It is a beautiful landmark and a must see. Spend an hour or what here it is worth while.

Definitely one of the many highlights of our walking tour of Graaff-Reinet. We visited the church during the morning and were amazed by the beautiful gothic architecture with a Karoo twist. Visiting this beauty is definitely worth it. Go inside for a bit of history.

The Dutch Reformed Church “Groot Kerk” cannot be missed when you pass through Graaf-Reinet. Nice to see how well this piece of architectural history is been maintained.
