Zwartsluis Things to Do: 9 reviews and 14 photos
The beautiful organ was built between 1793 and 1796 by Rudolph Knol form the village of Hasselt. The entire organ was increases in 1897 by mister Proper, and he also changed the front view and its position in the church. Finally in 2007, the company Mense Ruiter Organ (Zuidwolde) restored the complete organ again.
Via the man who was cleaning the benches I learned an amazing fact about the church, namely that in 1943 (during the second World War) both bells were stolen by the Germans. The little bell was found and returned undamaged, but the major one was so badly damaged that he was casted again in 1946 by Jacobus van Bergen Midwolda.
But anyway ... as you can read it really pays to have some walks around the city center ... you also may get lucky and be able to enter the church.
Address: Kerkstraat 31, Zwartsluis.
Directions: Right at the city center, you can't miss it.
