St-Gertrudiskerk (church of St Gertrude) : Michelin's recommendations
This vast Gothic building built in the 16 and 17C has an impressive isolated belfry crowned by a tiny onion dome. The interior has an attractive 18C pulpit and nine stretchers (gildebaren) whose paintings illustrate the activities of the Guilds. These were used to carry the bodies of dead members of the Guilds to the cemetery. The organ chest dates from 1697.
