A beautiful masterpiece, unique from any other! Grace but grand, a moving experience in history and architecture.

The church was bombed in WW2, so presumably the original glass was destroyed. The modern replacement (?50s) is simply stunning, showing how ancient architecture and modern art can be good neighbours. The two windows above the entrance door are very moving.

Please go here for the beauty and grace of the Church. We enjoyed it more than the Cathedral. The high ceilings and painted domes are beautiful. Quite a site.

In the shadow of the huge cathedral "Der Dom" this extraordinary church is often forgotten by tourists. It very symmetrical layout enfolds like a rose blossom. It reminds me of the Templer churches.

Liebfrauenkirche is a well preserved jewel of mediaeval architecture. The interior details, altars and wood carvings are in good condition. The stained glass windows were lost, but the overall impact of this wonderful church is magnificent.

This church next to the kathedral is more beautifull than the kathedral itself. It has a lot of gothic symbols and real nice stained glasses. Altough next to the kathedral, there are not a lot of people visitiing the church inside, so you can look and walk in silence.

It was a nice surprise to find very modern stained glass windows in this church. Worth a look, for sure.

After having visitied the town of Marburg, a visit to this old gothic church felt like a must. Together with the Elizabeth church in Marburg, this one is the oldest gothic church in Germany. It is beautiful and indeed filled with history.

The colour of the stained-glass windows is amazing, deep reds, deep blues. Truly impressive. Well-worth a visit.
