Sweelinck

Do you know more about this place?


Possible birthplace of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. When he was born, this house was the 'Organists house' of the nearby Lebuinus Church, where Sweelinck's father, uncle and grandfather played the organ. It is likely that they lived in this house, and thus possible that Sweelinck was born here. The current front of the house is of later date.

The plaque was unveiled on 6 October 2012, celebrating the fact that Sweelinck was born in Deventer 450 years ago.
