It always strikes me as a bit odd for a church to charge entry. But it’s only R5,00. You’ll get to enjoy the outside and inside of this church. The grand organ pipes from the balcony and ladder to the tower bell. Lots of history...More

I have only seen this church in photo's or on the tv. The photo's doesn't do justice to the absolute beauty of the interior of the church. Must seen landmark in Graaff-Reinet and the entrance fee is only R5 pp

Wanted to see this beautiful building from the inside and we decided to attend the church service on Sunday. It is a beautiful landmark and a must see. Spend an hour or what here it is worth while.

Definitely one of the many highlights of our walking tour of Graaff-Reinet. We visited the church during the morning and were amazed by the beautiful gothic architecture with a Karoo twist. Visiting this beauty is definitely worth it. Go inside for a bit of history.

The Dutch Reformed Church “Groot Kerk” cannot be missed when you pass through Graaf-Reinet. Nice to see how well this piece of architectural history is been maintained.

Very easy to spot. Very well worth a visit. A landmark in Graaff Reinet. Open to visitors. Plenty of parking on the road around the Church.

Visited the church on our way back from Plettenberg Bay. The small gate at the back of the church is open for visitors. We were allowed to go into the church as well. The church's interior is magnificently beautiful. Definitely a must visit if you...More
