How on earth can such a lovely building have such terrible stained glass. Modern and trendy this glass will date dreadfully and is actually not very detailed. The ancients knew better. Germany can do better than this as can almost every village church in England.

Church of our lady is impressive for the sheer size however, it's rebuilt after a fire or something and thus it lacks the old feel. The foundation is intact apparently but not the rest of the church.

The church is amazing with stunning stained glass windows of ancient and modern style. The entry is free with a gratuity box. It feels very Godly inside despite the crowds.

This church, joined to the Cathedral, is just stunning in its simplicity. Beautifully restored after the war, and renovated with great liturgical sensitivity as well. It is a very beautiful place to send a few moments in quiet, especially after the crowds in the cathedral next door

I have seen a lot of churches during my time living in Europe. That said, this one is pretty spectacular for its simple elegance and worth the trip.

The stained glass was amazing and has to be seen. Unlike the Dom (next door) which is a busy and noisy barn of a place, this was quiet and contemplative with gentle choral singing in the background. A beautiful place to visit.

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. Take your time to explore the walls and the ceiling and then sit down and just breath the calmness and peace of this jewel. The church is... More
