The building was heavily bombed during the last war. Despite it's appearance, it was actually only (re)built about 40 years ago. It has been faithfully reconstructed to match it's original appearance.

Pretty church, for sure, but seemed like every other church i've visited throughout Europe. Walk past it and stick your head in the lobby but no need tor any more.

The church from the outside looks very old and it is not "polished" - mostly left as it is. The price to go the panorama is quite high, but students can get a discount. The area on the top is not big, not so many...More

St. Peters Church is not the most ornate/ stunning Church around, but it was fun to take the elevator 123m up to the tower. We got a good view over the city, though prices were a bit high for an elevator-trip: 9euros per adult..
