Kampen (Hotel Pays-Bas, Broeder-Weg, R. 41/4-13/4, B. 3/4,
D. 13/4, omn. 1/4 fl.; Dom van Keulen, Boven Nieuwstraat, similar
charges; Hof von Holland, Nieuwe Markt), on the Yssel (here
crossed by a bridge), near its influx into the Zuiderzee, is a quiet
and clean Dutch town of 20,000 inhab., the seat of a military aca-
demy and of a small Reformed theological school. The town, once
a member of the Hanseatic League, was at the height of its pro-
sperity in the 15th cent., before the harbour was silted up.
The Koornmarkts- Poort, to the 8., one of the three ancient
gateways, dates from the 14th century. The *Onurcu or Sr. NicHo-
Las, or Bovenkerk, an imposing Gothic edifice of the 14th cent.,
with double aisles, ambulatory, and radiating chapels, contains a
handsome Gothic stone pulpit and sedilia. That of St. Mary, or the
Buitenkerk (Roman Catholic), dates also from the 14th century.
The chief object of interest, however, is the *SrapxHuis, restored
after a fire in 1543. The six statues on the facade (Charlemagne,
Alexander the Great, Moderation, Fidelity, Justice, and Neigh-
bourly Love) apparently date from the previous building of the
14th century. The council-room, with elaborately carved magis-
trates’ seats (notably the two presidents’ chairs) by Meister Vrederick
(1546), an almost ovyerladen sculptured chimney-piece by Jacob
Colyn de Nole (1545), and an artistic iron trellis before one of
the windows, is among the most characteristic curiosities in the
country. It contains a small collection of antiquities. A later
addition (1740-44) contains tapestry, portraits of stadtholders,
tankards, etc. — Inthe vicinity are the Broederkerk (15th cent.),
the former Minorite church, the fine Broeder-Poort, and the Tower
of the Holy Ghost, built in 1649-64 by Ph. Vinckboons, as a kind
of landmark between the Bovenstad and Buitenstad.
To the S. of the town lies the small Romanesque church of
Wilsum (42th cent.), restored in 1904.
