While the Cathedral is awe-inspiring, our favorite church in Strasbourg is Saint Pierre le June. As stated by others, the self-guided tour points out all the features of the church (don't miss a walk around the cloisters). The church reminded me of many that we saw in Italy. The paintings on the walls and the rood-screen are worth the visit.... More

Also, there is opportunity to donate... More

This church is worthy of several visits. Its frescos themselves are breathtaking. Then add the altarpiece and other wonder items, and you 'll want to come back multiple times to take it all in!

This church is so amazing! It is free to enter and they provide you with a self-guided pamphlet when entering. It's important to take the time to walk through the entire church as there is so much to see and so much history.

While all the other tourists flock to the Cathedral, why don't you turn off the beaten track and visit this enchanting gem? This lovely church, the oldest in Strasbourg, retains many of its enchanting, colourful Mediaeval frescos, some sadly in poor repair, but others have been restored and glow like jewels. It's sad to see that so much of the... More

I liked its sober and quiet interior, the paintings on the walls and the architecture. Besides it is very well situated and easy to find.

Colourful medieval church, every single corner of this church is full with details, we couldn't stop finding more nice decorations and needs urgently charity to keep the church in good condition.
