Beautiful church that suits Den Burg. With next to a real graveyard.

Functionally designed building with no particular artistic or architectural value. Electrics mostly out of date. No or hardly any sockets and no public wifi available. Lamps do not meet modern energy saving standards. Ceiling significantly too high, so heating costs have to be immense. Not up-to-date!

This is our church where we feel at home

A pinned aunt who wants to take away € 2.50 "entrance fee" immediately upon arrival. And in a hospice. Outrageous, what a degeneration.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
