St Egbert chapel

The Roman Catholic St Egbert chapel at the Badweg on the island of Schiermonnikoog was built in 1915 in a rationalism architectural style. It then belonged to a children´s colony home next to the chapel, also called St Egbert. Here so-called 'bleekneusjes' (lit.: 'whitenoses'), meaning children who were weakened by war, malnutrition, or medical reasons, could get stronger during a period of 6 weeks.

The chapel is in its original state and is still in use today. The building was declared a national monument.

  1. Rationalism... an architectural style that's new to me. Beautifully built!

  2. Rationalism and brickwork, that's something new... and quite nice!

  3. Looks very nice and different, I like it.

  4. De bleekneusjes verkleurden wel op dit eiland denk k.
