Oldenzaal Things to Do: 28 reviews and 41 photos


<font color='193993' size=3>This is a close up of one of the walls of the Basilica. These scraches have always fascinated me. You can find these scratches in the wall on a hight of 50 centimeters to about 2 meters, and there are quite a few of them all along the side. The basilica is made of Bentheimer sandstone and this material is quite soft, so it is not strange that they were able to scratch it this way. But I wonder why and how these scatches were made. So if anyone has the answer, please tell me, I would love to know.
