“in hamlet Bretzenheim”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

1789, Early Classicic Hall church, medieval tower with Baroque helmet, the Church Chapel has a 1850 classic hip roof, originally a simultaneous Church. Interior: a 1860 tomb M Puricelli in sandstone, a 1841grave of Agnes Utsch with cast iron crusifix, cast-iron laver, 1513 bell from a funeral home. The princely family donated the altars, therefore the pedestal ist decorated with the coats of arms of the sovereign, his sisters and his wife (a Princess from Oettingen-Spielberg). A princely lodge with mounted initials "CA" of Prince Carl August von Bretzenheim above the sacristy. The Palatinate Court Organ builder Andreas Kraemer crafted the 1791 organ which retained its place at the Empore (resting on two pillars above the entrance). The Chair for the evangelical priest stands on the left side of the nave as the choir and sacristy was reserved only the Catholics. Pulpit and confessionals were not preserved thus are today non existing. In 1954, after the Evangelical Friedenskirche was built, the Simultaneum was abrogated thus the Church became the exclusive property of Catholics.
