Comming from the highway, following the signs
“centrum”, the first reaction is: Am I going the right way? And then
suddenly you enter the old centre of IJsselstein. This picture was taken on
the first bridge – a lovely spot – with a view at the flourmill The
Windotter. This mill can be visited, but has very many steps.
Immediately over the bridge, turn right and after
taking the corner you arrive at the City Museum, Stadsmuseum.
Following the route, take two right turns and then
turn left just before the next bridge. There is a parking lot and from here
it is worthwhile to have a look at the church tower of the Grote- of St.
Nicolaaskerk. This tower is unique in Holland; it has a double eight cornered
In the church is the eldest gothic mausoleum of
the Netherlands and Gijsbrecht van Aemstel and his family are buried here
The church is only open to visitors on Saturdays,
from May through the end of September.
