Unfortunately there was a lot of building work going on when we visited so many of the most interesting information panels were not accessible however our friends gave us plenty of information. This is a simple building with an intersting and varied history but come in just to see the amazing Roman bricks that have held ths place up for some 1600 years. You only need 20 minutes or so here.

If you can come here for a concert as our ocal friends said the acoustics are amazing.

As you enter this church, you are immediately struck by the enormity of the open internal space. I found myself looking up in bewilderment, asking "how did they do it"? Although they are currently renovating to add a pipe organ, the church is open and there are many posters explaining its history. It's worth a stop to look up and wonder. No supporting pillars or posts. How did they do it?

This church is undergoing interior repair and refinement. The explanatory displays gave evidence that the congregation understood its error in standing by Hitler in WWII and wanted to become more inclusive and forgiving haven for Christians.

From what we were told this structure was rebuilt except 1 standing wall. The ceiling is extremely high and the building itself is huge. Holes in wall for heat to enter like most of the other structures had. This is another location to be done with a tour guide to get some of the history.

This building is simply huge. The ceiling unsupported by any columns seems an impossible accomplishment. Despite being damaged and rebuilt over the centuries this vast Roman building still carries a sense of awe from those distant times. There are good informative displays in English on the walls explaining the history of the building. Don't miss this impressive piece of architecture. At times the doors are shut for a wedding or religious service, come back later, it's worth it.
