Description :A panoramic view of Kampen by Braun and Hogenberg. TRANSLATION OF CARTOUCHE TEXT: Picture of the city of Kampen, the beautiful and charming appearance of which embellishes the IJssel. COMMENTARY BY BRAUN: "Kampen lies on the bank of the IJssel, not far from its mouth, well laid out in an attractive place with splendid buildings.
Kampen is also a trade city [...], an honest community and a solid alliance of many cities, towns, villages, for the benefit of trade by water and on land."
The bird's-eye view shows Kampen, which was an important trade centre from the 13th to the 17th century thanks to its favourable geographical location on the IJssel. The former wealth of this Hanseatic city is attested for instance by the magnificent Gothic Sint-Nicolaaskerk. The church tower in line with the bridge over the IJssel belongs to the Broederkerk, a Dutch Reformed church, which was once part of a monastery dating from the 15th century.
The Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk or Buitenkerk rises up on the right.
