This church is probably not so amazing if you are doing a tour of several EU cities. I think what is beautiful about this church is not so much the interior but the white exterior of the walls. The sunset light gives this church a golden hues and then changes to pinks and blues. The right weather conditions are necessary but great photos can be had here.

As my parents were married in this beautiful church I was touched to see it for the first time. I was permitted to sit after opening the 'door' to the pews. With the lovely soft organ music playing I must admit to a little tear.
But as I had just climbed the very steep stone steps, holding on to the rope I needed to sit for my 'jelly legs! Fantastic views to the port and rooftops.

Coats of Arms on the walls of those who are buried inside the church. It's a very old church, but definitely worth a look inside.

You can enter this place for no fee, but must wall kalong the side. For a fee, you may tour the entire church and take pictures. Don't waste your money. Walk along the side, look at the German Coats of Arms and move along. The coats of arms are the best part of the interior and postcards are better than any photo you have to pay to take.
