Guided tour in the Abbey church in Thorn

From conventual church to parish church and museum. The Gothic Abbey church still dominates the white town of Thorn. The VVV tour guide will lead you through this beautiful church.

The abbey church is a graceful legacy of 800 years of women in power. This is where the stiftsdames (canonesses) ruled.
The church is a gothic- style transept basilica with Roman west wing, dating from the 10th century. The interior is baroque and the church has a special group of baroque altars. One of the showpieces is the grand main altar. A crypt is situated under the presbytery.
The church was restored in the 19th century by the famous Roermond architec Pierre Cuypers. He demolished the spire of the abbey church and replaced it with a massive neo- Gothic bell tower.
A guided tour of this impressive church is an absolute must.
