This church was erected on the foundations of an ancient church complex built in the 13th century. The master builder came from France and brought the Gothic style to Germany for the first time.

Since this church is located right next to the Trier Cathedral you can't miss it. I was really impressed by the fact that these buildings were once surrounded by their own defensive wall. That goes to show how powerful the Archbishop of Trier once was.

This gothic church is very beautifully presented with decorative painting on the pillars and ceiling. Unfortunately the original stained glass windows are gone, as is the case for so many churches. Even so, it has a light, delicate feel. It has a unique floor plan not the standard t shape. Worth popping into!

The church is very serene and energetic. The simplicity and natural light make for very compelling viewing and one will feel quite peaceful and calm

If you have time and just visited the Dom then you should see this as well. Not as detailed and beautiful but worth another 15 minutes for sure

Even though there was a massive construction going on we were able to visit Church of Our Lady. It impressed us with all its history, and the rustic decor.
