I was late to meet my friends and our tour bus, but decided I couldn't pass by without taking a look inside this medieval church in the center of town. Although I only had a few minutes I'm glad I didn't miss it. It was...More

A typically pretty Alsatian church with an impressive alter piece, the working of the old church clock on display, and some typically beautiful stained glass.

Dating back to the 13th century this fine church offers impressions of the Romanesque building period and an impressive carved altar piece with lots of lively figures from the New Testament. The modern tinted glass windows fit in well
