This church is situated in the centre of the town market square and is pleasant to look at from the outside. Inside is rather minimalistic but a pleasure to look around. Castle first this second.

It's a big church right in the middle of several houses. The church gives the Altstadt a nice old touch, and it is a beautiful church. The day we where here there was a wedding in the church so we couldn't see all of it but the love was all around!

Visited around mid-day and found the church must nicer inside than out - the outside is surrounded by tat merchants' stalls which is inexplicable. Anyway, we passed on the climb up the tower (too much mountain walking in the previous couple of weeks) and wandered round the church itself. Essentially a nice large church with minimal decoration (apart from the odd white snake thing suspended from the ceiling). It has a very grand-looking organ which we discovered was used every day for a half-hour evening recital.

Duly wandered back around 5pm and were treated to a very varied selection of old and new tunes superbly played, and demonstrating a fair range of the organ's capabilities - unexpected and very enjoyable.

Well worth a visit, and worth catching the recital if you can.

Lovely church. Must see. Beautiful late gothic structure. It's a protestant church so the structure itself is what you will notice, not all the adornments. Climb the tower for 2 euro and also have access to the gallery for a different perspective of the interior. View from top is great. Windows are modern and a bit odd. There is a Hiroshima memorial window worth viewing.
