When you visit Scheveningen and do at the same time a walk along the Northsea beach, see the Oude Kerk (Old Church) where used to be an old fisher-village. It had 900 inhabitants in 1840. Historic parts of what originally was a fishing village can be seen at the Old Church, an edifice built in the 14th century.

It has been proved the Old Church must be older as the Old Scheveningen Port. In 1357 there has been some talk of "Capelaria Sceveninghe", which official name was St. Antonius Abt (Abbot of St. Antoinius). After Reformation (16th. century) it was named Dutch Reformed Church, and became the Old Church after the construction of the New Church in 1893.

The Old Church still stands at the end of Keizerstraat, a sentinel of centuries, just behind the dunes. Its interior is simple, beautiful and inviting ....
