Nederland - Dwingeloo, Sint Nicolaaskerk

Nederland - Dwingeloo, Sint Nicolaaskerk
The Dutch Reformed Church Sint Nicolaaskerk is located in the centre of the village of Dwingeloo. The brick, gothic, hall church was built around the year of 1410 on the site of an older church from the 12th century with a free standing tower. The church is very similar to other Gothic village churches in the province of Drenthe, consisting of a one-aisled nave with a narrower choir and a tower decorated with niches.

The Sint Nicolaaskerk has a remarkable onion-shaped tower, which gives the church its nickname De Siepel (meaning ‘onion’ in the local dialect). After a huge fire in 1923 the original spire was replaced by a slightly less tender copy. It is still the landmark of Dwingeloo and is visible from a great distance.

This remarkable onion-shaped tower tends to distract our attention from the rest of the building, which is remarkable and which you have captured with great precision. Splendid photos deserved by this very pretty church.
