This Lutheran "hall church" was originally built in the 14th century and restored iin 1952 after suffering damage from WWII air raids.

It is your decision if the survival of this building during WWII is a miracle, it is up to you. But beeing in this building and having a gospel concert going on is unbelievable.

This is a typical large Lutheran church. Impressive without being ornate. The display of different Christmas cribs from around the world in December (2016) was excellent.
