This is a very pretty church. Unfortunately a wedding was about to take place so we did not have much time to look around. It had been beautifully decorated for the wedding so looked even prettier.

An Unique and different looking church in hauptstrasse with some unusual appearance from inside and outside. Not worth your time but you can do a quick walk-in and walk-out of the church.
