This church was unusual and memorable in a number of different ways. For one, the caretakers have decidedly gone the route of taking a more unconventional, modern approach to providing visitors with information on the church, from more "fun" looking pamphlets to dramatic audioguides voiced...More

Close by the Red Light District is this fascinating old church. Plain and elaborate in equal measure we were thoroughly absorbed and amused by the explanatory guide booklet presented to English-speaking visitors. Allow a good hour to take in all the facets of this curious...More
