This church we visited on the spur of the moment. Inside it was simply devorated. However, the double naive sets this church apart. Worth a visit.

This church is unique in that it has a double nave and also was great to hear a singing group put on a concert. No heat in there but pretty amazing to hear with the excellent acoustics if you get the chance for that experience.

I have visited more exciting churches but I did stop in for a quick peek. I enjoy seeing churches but others may not. It is centrally located so stop in for a peek if walking by.

This old (1285) church is the oldest in town. It is very simple outside and in. There is little artwork inside but the altar is another church by Tilman Riemenschneider. It is located near the Castle Gate and the Herrnbrunnen.

Beautiful old church near the centre of the town, although it does not have all the windows and ceiling painting of other churches , there is real history.

Don't miss the Tilman Riemenschneider altar of St Francis. There are also 15th and 16th century sculptures.
