Hoorn's Religious Heritage walk: religious statues and wall panels

Introduction

religieus Hoorn's historic centre is rich in old buildings carrying decorative wall panels and carving, many of which are based on religious stories and texts. Chris Schrickx, born and bred in Hoorn has inventoried these and has compiled a walk along these remarkable bas-reliefs and statues. This route takes you through much of Hoorn's historic old centre and harbour area.
Whereas the other town walks organised by the Vereniging Oud Hoorn are guided tours,this is one you can do in your own time with the help of the text and route map.

Time: approx. 90 min
Starting point: Vereniging Oud Hoorn club building "Oost-Indisch Pakhuis
Onder de Boompjes 22, Hoorn
