Sint Maartenskerk - Tiel
Where the Sint Maartenskerk now stands, there was already a predecessor in the 10th century. But when Tiel became a city of distinction and a lot of trade was going on, the church was tackled in the Hanseatic period. In 1431 the church received a tower, but because the foundation was inadequate, it was soon demolished and replaced by a new tower with a high wooden spire. At the end of the 17th century, the church fell into disrepair; in the 18th century, the remains of the choir even served as a horse stable. The liberation in 1945 also caused serious damage. After a thorough renovation in 1964, the Sint Maartenskerk now stands again in all its glory.

Of course, the church can always be admired from the outside, but there are also regular activities that keep the doors open.

Did you know that Tiel was once a Hanseatic city? As a 'neighbour' of the great city of Nijmegen, Tiel profited from the trade on the river Waal. Unfortunately, the history of Tiel as a Hanseatic city did not last long.
