This is a very cool old church and tower that is well worth the 2 euros to climb to the top! That is, if you're OK with narrow, rickety stairs, tight spaces, heights, and a fair amount of bird poop near the top. But the...More

First off, the gentleman who was working the ticket counter for the tower was awesome. He was able to speak to us in English and told us all about what we would see when we got up there. He had maps and diagrams and everything....More

This church was a bit of a surprise: the interior is very bright due to the large windows that don't have stained glass. Also, you can climb the tower for a small fee, but be warned that this isn't for people who are very scared...More

We visited Damme on a ship's tour. The church is interesting but not outstanding. One can climb to the tower for about 2 euros. The area is so flat that on a good day one can see for miles
