Ubbergen municipality (G)
Ubbergen is a municipality east of the city of Nijmegen. Besides the village of Ubbergen, it consists of several more villages, like Beek, Persingen, Kekerdom and Leuth.
 
Beek

 

 

 

The reformed church of Beek is a small one-aisled building  with a tower that partly dates from the 11th century and a nave and choir which, although they could be mistaken for being Romanesque, date from the 17th century.

Location: Nieuwe Holleweg
 

 

 

 

 

The catholic St. Bartholomeus was built as a three-aisled church in neo-Classical style in 1825-1826. In 1891-1892 it was enlarged by J. Kayser, who added a fourth aisle, a pseudo-transept and a tower in neo-Renaissance style.

Location: Kerkweg 1

 

 
Ubbergen

 

 

 

The former reformed church of Ubbergen was built as a chapel in the 15th century but was changed several times since. The current closure probably dates from ca. 1650, while the steeple was added in ca. 1848.

Location: Rijksstraatweg 3

 

 

 

 

The former monastery Notre Dame des Anges has a big chapel in neo-Gothic style, which was built between 1910 and 1916 and was designed by J.H.H. van Groenendael.

Location: Rijksstraatweg 37-39

 

 
Persingen

 

 

 

Persingen is one of the smallest villages in the Netherlands, if not the smallest. A long time ago it was much bigger. In the 15th century this church was built, originally dedicated to St. Dionysius but after a restoration in the 1950's renamed St. Joriskapel.

Location: Persingensestraat 7

 


Kekerdom





The St. Laurentius of Kekerdom is a one-aisled church in gothic style built in the 15th century with a neo-Gothic tower built in 1873 after a design by A.W. Roelofsen. At the same time the nave was lengthened towards the east and a new apse added.

Location: Duffeltdijk 11

Leuth











The catholic St. Remigius in Leuth is a one-aisled cruciform church in Expressionistic style. Architect H.C. van de Leur designed it in the style of his former employer Dom Bellot. It was built in 1934-1935.

Location: Kerkplein
