The Eusebiuskerk has the shape of a three-aisled cruciform basilica. Construction began in 1450 and was completed after over a hundred years. In terms of style, the building is strongly based on the Xanten Cathedral. In the church there is the magnificent grave of the Geldrian duke Karl von Egmond. The 93 meter high tower houses a large carillon with the second largest carillon bell in the Netherlands.
In the Second World War, the church with the city was largely destroyed. While the nave was rebuilt true to the original, the tower was given a modern finish, which was completed in 1964 and is accessible via a glass elevator as a viewing platform. The church is no longer used exclusively as a sacred space, but for various purposes.
