The Old Church (Oude Kerk), Oosterbeek

 

In a picturesque location bordering the flood plains of the river Nederrijn in Oosterbeek you will find one of the oldest churches in the Netherlands. It is a monument of architectural interest and also, because it played an important part during the Battle of Arnhem in 1944, a place of pilgrimage for the veterans of Operation Market Garden and their descendants.

Because of its serenity and its beautiful location the church is very popular as a wedding venue. The surrounding area, especially the Veluwezoom, offers many opportunities for wedding parties.

The church’s acoustics are really good, which makes it an ideal venue for concerts. An organ and a grand piano are at your disposal. Since the renovation in 2014 the church has wheelchair access. Church and vestry can be hired for lectures, presentations, book launches, and business meetings.

There is ample parking space nearby and a bus stop almost in front of the church.
