The church is beautiful in its simplicity, with a clean look. We got there during the mass, so we couldn't look around too much, but on the other hand we were amazed with the beautiful music of the mass.

It is spacious and filled with light church. Amazing architecture and for some reason it has pacifying effect on you. You can stay there for hours.

Well worth a short walk away from the centre of the city to discover this wonderful gem. Kept in beautiful order and a real piece of architecture.

This is a fascinating building. Very ornate but in need of attention. We visited it twice, once for our Friday evening rehearsal and the again on Saturday for our concert. Full of tourists who were very appreciative of our singing. Good place to sing.

We visited this church on the Thursday afternoon; this was the first timewe saw it was open. As it is off the main square a bit, it was not full of tourist so was peaceful and powerful. Entry by donation. Gorgeous pulpit, nice art work, decorate communion rail, lots of silverware and a lovely altar piece by Suvee. Certainly worth... More

From the outside you think what and amazing place and want to take a look inside, sadly when you go inside it’s a different story and out of the 4 churches we visited this was the worst off. This church is not loved by the owners etc. There is damp everywhere and it’s decorated sparsely. Paintings are ruined and works... More

It’s worth the effort to find this church, which is on side streets to the north east of the Markt. The interior is spectacularly beautiful, and a real surprise. There is no entrance fee, but donations are welcome, of course. And there’s no restriction on photography, which isn’t the case for many similar places. I’ll let the attached photos handle... More
