There is a board with some history about the church in the entrance hall. It is quiet old with wooden floor and they need support for renovation. So go in and donate some money to support this nice church.

Not so near the city center, but yet worth the walk. Beautiful, amazing building, tucked in the small street. Building next to it has glass facade, so it is really nice for taking photos :)

While we were at the church the organ was playing so the atmosphere was unusual and authentic . Admission was free but you can donate to the restoration of the organ.
