The interior of St. Georg makes a totally different impression to the blocklike exterior: pillars, partially reused from Roman buildings, divide the church into three naves. Originally the pillar basilica had a flat roof, which was replaced by arches in the 12th century. As a result two additional pillars had to be integrated, which now break through the pillar basilica. The interior impression in St. Georg has been influenced since the twenties of last century by the expressionist windows (1930) by Jan Thorn-Prikker and both the large crucifixes from the 11th and the 14th century.

People with hearing disabilities should be involved in the common events as much as possible; this is called: Inclusion; integration and inclusion are our goals. At St. George's, inclusion is something quite normal, just "all inclusive..."
