Old churches in the landscape of Friesland
Old churches determine the skyline of the landscape of Friesland. Nowhere else in Europe can you find as many churches from the late Middle Ages as in the north of the Netherlands. Riches well worth preserving.
An increasing number of church buildings is losing its original purpose. De Stichting Alde Fryske Tsjerken (The Old Frisian Churches Foundation) wants to prevent them from disappearing. It achieves this goal by taking over ownership of monumental churches in special cases.
