There is a small €2 entrance fee but the Dominican Church is definitely worth a visit. The church is fairly plain but it has some beautiful stained glass and artwork. The masterpiece of the church is the altar piece "Virgin in the Rose Bush" by Martin Schongauer.

This church with its unfinished east tower is in the sparce Dominican style. Entry is 1.5€ which is typical of the Dominican Order if it were Jesuit it would be 5€ or if Franciscan, free.

Dark and somewhat scary location with the only thing going for it - the beautiful Vierge au Buisson de Roses - that said, they know this is the thing, so you have to pay to access the altar.

This former Domenican church was constructed in the 13th and 14th centuries. It is now a museum and apart from important old books boasts the 'Madonna im Rosenhag' painting - the Virgin with the Roses altarpiece.

This church was started in 1283 and most of it dates back to the 14th century? It is rather austere inside except for Martin Schongauer's masterpiece,Madonna of the Rose Bush. When we were there, even though there are signs saying no photos, a docent assured us that photos are fine as long as no flash is used. Definitely worth going... More

This former church basically houses just one picture - the Madonna im Rosenhag - so it really is showcased and shown off to it's advantage. Admission is only €1,50

We went to this church because there was a fabulous exhibit of Dominican writings, illuminations and documents. Other than this there was nothing particularly unique.
