Neerijnen

 

 

 

 

The reformed church of Neerijnen is an excellent, although rather late, example of the early neo-Gothic style and dates from 1865. Architect was probably A.M.A. Gulden, town-architect of Zaltbommel.

Location: Van Pallandtweg 12, Neerijnen

 

Opijnen

 

 

 

 

The reformed church of Opijnen isn't in any particular style. It's just a simple white-plastered one-aisled building. It dates from ca. 1860. The neo-Gothic tower was added in ca. 1925.

Location: Stoepstraat 2, Opijnen

 

 

Varik

 

 

 

 

Of the medieval church of Varik only the tower from the 15th century remains. It's a robust tower of brick and tuff with some nice Gothic details, standing at a very picturesque location next to a dike.

Location: Waalbanddijk 14a, Varik

 

 

 

 

 

 

The catholic St. Petrus en Pauluskerk from 1879 is a neo-Gothic church designed by architect A. Tepe, who designed many similar churches.

Location: Grotestraat 21, Varik
