Favorite thing: The St. Lambertus Basilic was build in 1890, but the catholic community was already 100 years older. Services started in a barn-church around 1800.

The big building withstood many World War II bombardments and was lucky to servive un unexploded shell that crashed through the roof.

Inside the Celebration Altar is the central heart in the church. Three more altars are present: the Hogh Altar by Friedrich Wilhelm Mengelberg and the Maria Altar and the Family Altar.

The three stain glass main windows form a connection from the Old to the New Testament.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
