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

This must be one of the very few major churches in Europe where one can still see the small shops build right up to it. Now selling mostly tourist trinkets, the shops still give a good idea of what must once have been common. The...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.

This church is the most imposing monument in front of the town hall in Heidelberg. There are two clear demarcations for worship by Catholic and Protestants. Inside the church are majestic stained glass windows. This is a must visit for tourists to study not only...More

This church dominates the Marktplatz in Heidelberg and is located opposite the town hall. It is beautiful inside. The acoustic is great for organ recitals. Entrance is free but if you want to climb the tower there's a small charge.
