Beautiful church in the city center. Went in to light a candle and enjoy a few minutes of peace. Ideally set and beautiful simple decor

This is a beautiful Protestant Church with an interesting combination of traditional arches and window, yet very contemporary seating and prayer candles. Nice place to visit after dark, as they keep the doors open rather late.

This is a very lovely church. It was under renovation when I was there in December, so it was a little too complicated for a casual visit, but I could still see that it was lovely inside and on the outside, too.

A much more attractive view from the outside. I wish there were some explanations about the building available in English, so I world learn on site. The interior was not particularly impressive, compared to the many churches you can find in Europe. But great location...More

It's narrow. It's winding. There are a lot of steps. A. Lot. Of. Steps. But its a really nice view from the top and the small admission charge benefits the church.

We visited on a Sunday in October. From the outside it is spectacular. On the inside it looked like a community center, nothing original. So if you don't get a chance to get inside you haven't missed anything.

Located in the Marktplatz, the city's main square, with a beautiful late Gothic interior and a tower that has panoramic views of the city.
