Saint George's Church: Tourism and Rental
In the middle of The Netherlands, at a cross point of train rails… This story has to be about Amersfoort! No wonder Amersfoort is a much wanted city for gatherings, concerts, symposia and other events. Central to the historical city town rises the Saint George’s Church (Sint-Joriskerk), a stunning location for everyone who loves style and allure. Generosity and flexibility are most important to us.
Every Sunday the church is occupied by the Saint George’s Church congregation. On every other day, the Saint George’s Church is available for rental or visitation. With the explicit notion that the activities shouldn’t conflict with the nature of the building.
