In other countries there’s nothing unusual about visiting an imposing cathedral. In the Netherlands, though, many people walk past churches without really noticing them. Yet Dutch churches contain superb works of art by the finest artists and house them in splendid settings. Museum Catharijneconvent, sixteen churches and two synagogues have established the basis for this exceptional project. Together they form the Grootste Museum van Nederland, the largest museum of the Netherlands. The hidden treasures of the Netherlands are now being unveiled for everyone to see.
How long did it take to build the church? Who is this saint, and how can I recognise him or her? Who had themselves buried in the church? What was the Iconoclasm all about? We have selected the highlights for you in the churches and synagogues of the Grootste Museum van Nederland. You will discover all these stories with the audiotour. Wandering through the church or synagogue you will hear a different story at different spots. You can also choose to listen to a guided tour, which will show you all the highlights.
