11 Westerkerk Replica at Madurodam in Scheveningen, Netherlands

Another Amsterdam landmark superbly reproduced at Madurodam is Westerkerk. The real Western Church was constructed in 1631. The most eye-catching feature is Westertoren (Western Tower). The orb on top represents the Imperial Crown of Austria worn by Maximilian I. He was king of the Romans (1486 – 1519) and Holy Roman Emperor (1493 – 1519). His wife Mary inherited the Seventeen Provinces. Also called the Low Countries, this covered most of today’s Netherlands.
