Amazing to see the post WW2 picture of the church inside as it shows how much work went in to restoring it. Nice stonework, worth spending about 20 minutes looking through it.

It's a beautiful old church in the old city but will only take you about 15 minutes to walk through. That is all.

very powerful experience to see this church. The photo display from pre and post war is gripping. An amazing sense of peace and beauty inside.

Beautiful old church within the Aldstat. I am amazed at the size of these churches. I liked the fact that it was easily accessible and easy to get to.

We usually find time to visit this church when we are in the area. It has great views if you have the chance to go up to the balcony, however it is not always open. The church in itself is worth a visit!!!

We went inside and also climbed upon the balcony for views of the Christmas market. These views are open from 10. They were meant to be open on Sunday earlier but postponed due to a special church service so we had to return later. There's information about Christkind upstairs too.

There are many churches in Europe. This one is interesting because it was originally a Catholic church. It is probably the only Lutheran church in the world that contains the body of a Catholic saint--Saint Sebaldus.

St. Sbaldus is an unmissable sight. The details in it's architecture is amazing. The golden clock, the statues on every pillar, the Windows, doors, arcs are beautiful pieces of art. You've got to see it!
