“Most beautiful pulpit ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

If one wants to see its interior one needs to do so when mass is going on, as normaly outside those the church is closed. Must say it is really worth the effort as it is one of the most charming church interiors in Trier. This Parish church is located near the town hall “Augustinerhof” and the Trier Theatre. It was built between 1458 and 1514 in the southwest corner of the grounds of the no longer existing Capucine monastery. Interior is light and spacious with a richly reticulated vaulting Late Gothic period. Simply furnished. Elaborately carved rococo pulpit from 1762, taken from the remains of the Dominican monastery, which stood near the Cathedral and was demolished in 1812. Richly decorated with figures of the Evangelists, the Church Fathers and Dominicans. Is the successor to a church originally outside the city wall which lost its importance because of its location (St. Mary's at the Bridge).
