“Jewel of a church.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This Protestant church is actually 3 churches which were built in succession since 1031. This is one of the most beautiful churches I've seen in Europe. Frescoes depicting the life of Christ adorn the walls, and the church leads you from one chapel into another. It is like opening one box to discover another. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful and unpretentious church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This unpretentious church with great history is only a short walk from the cathedral and it is easy to see its greenish looking spire from faraway.
There are at least three churches with the same name in Strasbourg and the Catholic St. Pierre le Jeune is also not so faraway from this one.
Both churches provide a laminated information pamphlet at the entrance, which is to be returned when leaving.

“Busy but Beautiful Church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The architectural bones of the church are beautiful to behold but you have to work to see them as there is a lot of modern clutter added to it. The area around it is peaceful as it's mostly away from the tourist trail.

“What a happy find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We never would have visited if we hadn't read a posting on TA. This is a beautiful old church with a lovely cloister, beautiful paintings...a low key but wonderful place to pause and reflect on another time in this lovely city.
