Worth visiting. Splendid building. Centre of life in the town. A large group of young ladies were receiving their degrees in the middle of the nave and there was an exhibition of architectural plans going on to one side at the same time. The crypt...More

The Lebuïnuskerk stands out in Deventer , This church can be seen from far away while approaching Deventer . It quite dominates while standing at the Ijssel . Inside one may be enchanted by the historical items and graves .

An amazing piece of architecture for sure. High roofs, mosaic art, stone floor, brick walls; everything adds up to old and majestic building. The giant organ is a masterpiece. Felt like I'm inside some other universe. A great experience.

The Lebuinuskerk is a big church with a big tower in the center of Deventer. The church does not have very rich interior decoration, it is rather sober.

It's a UNESCO heritage site. And truly impressive. Regretfully we could not get it. A film was being shot inside. So we have to come back! Albert Schweitzer used to play the organ here, at the time. He visited Deventer quite often. Why? He had...More

We hadn't been in this church since our last trip to the town six years ago and we seemed to enter it at the other end from our previous visit. Inside people were rehearsing for a concert that evening, which added much interest. We were...More

We visited the church for a lovely concert. It was really special. Wonderful church. Great acoustics. Certainly recommend a visit while a concert is on. We cannot comment on any other visit.
