The church has many services during the day/evening. I most recently visited the Advent service. Right on the plaza and easily accessible from the Markt center.

The Church is interesting for its place in the history of the city, Germany, and the faith. It is worth a visit.

Lovely square where this church stands. We enjoyed our walk through the town and coming up on this church from different angles as we strolled through the beautiful alleys

This unusual church is tucked into back streets off the centre of town but it well signposted. It is unusual in that it has a bright pink balcony around the sides. The altarpiece is also unusual in that it reminded me of the cloth of...More
