Beautifully restored church with a monumental organ. A visit to the church is definitely worth it.

Great beautiful church for concerts, etc. very old church of 68 meters long. At this time there was a concert. The church has digital screens to see everything clearly. Nice overview of everything. Highly recommended to come and see the church. Open daily from 9am to 5pm

Impressive interior! Such a building in such a small community ... Definitely worth a visit, even if it doesn't look like it from the outside (apart from the imposing size)
