Explore The Laurenskerk, also known as Church of St. Lawrence, a symbol of the resilience of the people of Rotterdam. Be in awe of the only medieval building that has partially survived the bombing of Rotterdam in 1940 and learn about its reconstruction. Admire The Laurenskerk's classic design which is in sharp contrast with the hyper modern surrounding architecture. Take in the the bronze doors of war and peace designed by Italian artist Giacomo Manzù. The door’s panels depict the horrors of war and the joys of peace. Take a look at the 18th-century brass choir screen, the baptismal font of Hans Petri, the 17th-century tombs of Witte de With, Egbert Kortenaer, and Johan van Brakel. Marvel at the three Marcussen organs – including the largest organ in the Netherlands.
The church is wheelchair accessible but the tower is not.
Fijne gids, goeie uitleg en prachtig uitzicht op de toren!
