St. Plechelmus Basilica and Treasury - Oldenzaal

N 52.3121645 / E 6.9289619

St. Plechelmus Basilica was built around 1150 from Bentheim sandstone in the Romanesque style. The tower was added to the church around 1240. The tower of the Plechelmus Basilica has five sections and is 61 meters high. Construction of the tower probably started around 1220. The transition from architectural styleof Romanesque to Gothic is particularly visible in the articulations. The higher you go the more and more complicated and more numerous the decorations become. The tower guides of the VVV Oldenzaal provide guided tours of the basilica's tower all year round. In the treasury of the basilica, a large number of ecclesiastical objects are kept, such as chancels and paraments, a monstrance, an early 14th-century calendarium and Plechelmus's silver reliquary from 1480.
