In Dutch it translates as follows:

De kerk van de heilige Maria in de holte van de witte hazelaar in de buurt van een snelle draaikolk en de kerk van de heilige Tysilius van de rode grot

The German version's translation isn't quite correct. It should be

Die Kirche der Heiligen Maria in der Höhlung der weißen Haselnußbäume in der Nähe von dem schnellen Strudel und die Kirche des Heiligen Tysilios der roten Höhle.

PS Altavista has often inaccurate and incorrect (both grammar and words) translations
