Vingelen church, situated right beside the museum, is one of the village’s main landmarks. The present building was erected in 1880 and is a so-called ‘long church’ in Neo-gothic style. Ancient building techniques and the over 800 pre-1900 houses still standing provide a distinctive character to the whole village.
