Unfortunately the Cranach alter was hidden for renovation, but an excellent color reporduction covers the site. A smaller Cranach painting is nearby

Inside under reconstruction; still interesting due to its historic position but no highlight for now. Large altar painting under protective cover

The Cranach alterpiece is being restored and there is very little to see of the church, but it will be wondeful when the work is finished. Meanwhile the archaeologists outside were brushing the earth off a large number of very shallow graves.

You might not want to visit until the road construction is complete as it's a bit hectic at the moment but if you brave the chaos bring your camera. This is stop number 18 on the Weimar tour map that you can pick up for free in the information center.

My husband and I visited this church during our time in Weimar. The most ornate carvings and details around the altar were amazing. The celing was beautiful and the entire church had a most reverent atmosphere. we took time to sit and soak up the feeling of being in a holy place.
