Dutch Reformed Church
Dec 2020
We saw the church form the outside. It is beautiful and historic. It stands out as an attraction in the middle of town.

Wow what a Church. I could worship here with ease! Its majestic and beautifully preserved. The stained glass surprised me - I thought it would have been wow! But all in all its an amazing architectural beauty.

Beautiful Church
Sep 2020
Unfortunately the gates were closed so we could not go inside the church. The outside is very impressive and we enjoyed taking photos of it.

Beautiful and unique Church
Aug 2020
By far the most beautiful church I have ever seen. The architectural design of the church is incredible, alot off detail in the artwork. It’s a must see when you are visiting Graaff-Reinet.

Outstandingly beautiful façade ...
Feb 2020
I personally felt the Dutch reformed Church was much more beautiful on the outside than its interior. Considered one of the finest examples of Neo-Gothic architecture the fact that two different types of local stone were used in its façade gave it a rather distinct feature.

Great looking church. Walking distance from most B&Bs. Very neat and in the centre of town. Worth visit.

The focal point of town
Dec 2019 • Family
Every small South African town has a church. Most of which are the focus point of the town and community. This church is an imposing figure that cannot be ignored. Beautifully maintained. To gain entrance go round the back. Do not be afraid to explore the different rooms. I enjoyed the room which gave a backdrop of history with all the photos of the ‘shepherds’ tending to the flock since the beginning. I saw a lot of links to the community and I can see that it is still a major part of the community’s lives. However, having said all that, I felt something was missing. I felt no connection to this church.

Impressive Building
Nov 2019
This building is really something to check out. Very beautiful. It's right in the middle of Graaff Reinet and once you parked your car, can easily be reached on a "walking tour" through the place

Beautiful building, well maintained

Definitely worth a visit, the Groot Kerk stands majestically in the middle of the town, and is a must see in Graaff - Reinet. the building and property on the whole is very well maintained, it was lovely to visit.
