Museum de Heksenwaag

Reviewed By David R - Neutral Bay, Australia

Perhaps not the most dynamic of museums but never the less well worth a short visit. The video and text exhibits while a bit clunky and could to with updating were however very interesting with great explanations in both Dutch & English into the often tragic world of accused witches and the superstition surrounding witch craft - Getting weighed is half the fun.

Oudewater is a lovely town with beautiful old buildings. It is nice to see them from the water as well. The guide was very knowledgeable, all in all an entertaining hour.

Grote- of St.-Michaelskerk Oudewater

Wederom genoten van deze - 's avonds prachtig verlichte - kerk met haar mooie interieur en prima akoestiek. Zeer de moeite waard om hier een concert bij te wonen.

The Rope museum Oudewater

Thanks to the rope industry, Oudewater was an extremely rich touw in the seventeenth century. The Rope Museum is set up in an old shed of a rope walk. It tells the story of hemp and rope. With the assistance of a museum employee you can make your own rope.

Reviewed By RHAHJ - Nijmegen, The Netherlands

This is a very small rope museum. Tools are shown and manufacturing explained. I think it better to go to the Freilicht museum in Hagen for some nice demonstrations, along with many other traditional skills. Of course it's a different language there. But Oudewater is nice, with old buildings and the witches weighing house.

De Rooms-katholieke Kerk H. Franciscus van Assisie

Reviewed By T2473HCjeanp - Namur

In het rustige en mooie dorpje vind je de kerk H. Franciscus van Assisië. Alhoewel deze kerk gebouwd werd in de 19e eeuw is het toch de moeite waard er eens binnen te springen. Zuilen, beelden, afbeeldingen op de muren en plafonds alles in mooie kleuren, prachtige glasramen, indrukwekkend altaar door het spel van het licht, orgel die goed tot zijn recht komt in zijn omgeving, een mooie verplaatsbare doopvont en een mooie preekstoel rechtvaardigen zeker een bezoekje
