4,021 items
Parts of the church were rebuilt in the seventeenth century. The church bells date from the fifteenth century, but during the Second World War, with the country under occupation, the order was received to remove the bells and convey them, along with the bells from more than 200 other Dutch clock towers, to Germany. The bells were duly demounted from the tower and shipped along the coast towards Germany. However, near Urk the ship sank and after the war the bells from Den Hoorn were salvaged and returned to the tower.
