Visiting the Stevenskerk is quite an experience. The church is the 750-year old icon of Nijmegen. Over centuries, the Stevenskerk and Nijmegen have become intertwined. Not only does the church tell the story of the city, but it has also been its symbol ever since it was reconstructed after WW2.
The elegant domes, the monumental Köniorgan, the splendid incidence of light through the stained glass windows, the age old graves, that spectacular row of chandeliers: one simply doesn’t know where to look. There is no doubt you will be affected by this impressive monument. It touches one deeply. Come and visit the Stevenskerk and discover all the stories yourself.
Do not forget to climb the Stevenstoren, from which you'll have a wonderful view at Nijmegen and it's surroundings.
