Fodor's Expert Review Sint Laurenskerk

Rotterdam Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Built between 1449 and 1525, this church is juxtaposed against its modern surroundings. The main organ ranks as one of Europe's largest. Hendrick de Keyser's statue of Erasmus in the square was buried in the gardens of the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen during the war and miraculously survived. The interior contains a permanent exhibition on the church and its place in Rotterdam society. It's possible to climb the church tower for a panoramic view, but only at specific times.
