Great Church Open Days

The Great Church ('Grote Kerk') in The Hague is open to the public. As one of the oldest buildings in The Hague - a wooden church is reputed to have stood here as early as the 13th century - the open days are an excellent opportunity to admire the inside of the Great Church at your leisure. The interior of the church includes many monuments, such as the 15th-century coats of arms in the church hall and the impressive mausoleum of admiral Jacob van Wassenaer Obdam. During the open days, volunteers are present to explain more about the history, and there is also an audio tour that leads you past the sights of the Great Church.
