One of many beautiful churches you will see in the area, this one is a little more modern than most but well worth visiting.

Mixed church
Mar 2019 • Couples
This church is first purely for protestant by themselves built church in Würzburg. It is dedicated for lutheran religion. Church was completed 1895 and destroyed 16.3.1945 bombing. Rebuilding took place 1950's. The towers reach height of 60 meters.
It is very plain church compared the catholic churches of the city. The altar sculpture is beautifully curved from wood.

Another odd church
Dec 2015 • Friends
Attracted by the unusua looks of the place, we got here when it was almost dark. There were no lights inside, except for some candles and no people at all, so it was kind of creepy. Nevertheless, it seem to be a different kind of church, so you can visit it out of curiosity.

a memorial
Oct 2015 • Couples
At first it looks like a Berlin ruin in memoriam WW2
At closer look, that might be the desired effect of this unitarian church post reconstruction.
Stark within and stark without, the dual addition of 2 spikes rather than 2 spires to the older architecture says it all for me.
Further enhanced by the wonderful brutalist memorial to the German dead of all wars hidden away in the park just up the road and well worthy of a visit.

Impressive Exterior
Jul 2015 • Solo
The St. Johannis is impressive from exterior. It has Gothic appearance. Its twin towers are majestic. I wish I could visit it from inside but was closed, but even from outside it is majestic and worth seeing if you are in the area.

Very odd but special exterior
Aug 2011
1893, Neo-Gothic church, destroyed during the bombing in 1945. In 1957 the St Johannis Church (architect R. Riemerschmied) was rebuilt as the Protestant parish church. The current building was built on the Tower remains. The stump of the old tower and the entrance portal remained preserved. It reminds as a memorial to the horrors of war and calls us to account for peace.
