I was quite excited to go to Arnhem to see the titular "bridge too far" but was not surprised to see a dynamic city that included several landmarks aside from the bridge. One of these landmarks was the St. Eusebius Church, which dominated the cityscape. The church had the tallest structure in the city and this was an even larger building than the old church in Enschede.
|It was difficult to get a good shot of the church at close distance. Here is a photo showing the scaffolds they installed for the restoration work.|
|The perimeter of the church is fenced off.|
|This is the church across from St. Eusebius, which, I am told is where they hold Masses. St. Eusebius is now more a museum and an architecture school than what it was built for in the first place (i.e., a place for worship).|
|Antiquated bells adorn the side walls of the church|

|People pass by the back of the church where the streets are closed off to vehicular traffic for the outdoor bazaar.|
The church is generally not open to the public or at least not for religious purposes. The exception here being the parts that are being exhibited as part of its restoration/preservation. I was able to get a nice souvenir though, which was similar to those I collected in my travels to the US where you press a coin into a machine that you crank, and transforms it to one of various designs featured.-
