Monumental
Sep 2020
A monumental church in the old town (est. ). Interesting, as churches go, in any case it is nice and quiet in side. You can also climb up 200 steps for spectacular views of the city (Hello there -- sexy dude! ( €2 donation)

Lovely architecture
Aug 2019 • Couples
A very broad and admirable architecture. Frankly speaking I haven’t been to such a large church lately. Although we did not enter the church due to time crunch, I’m pretty sure this would be quite an attraction to see.

Pretty and monumental church. It's not the most beautiful church I've ever been to but you can have a look, it's free of charge.

A visit to the old town of Worms is not complete until you have seen the Heiliggeistkirche. Wonderfully maintained and restored.

MUST DO: Hike up to the top of this church!
Oct 2019
This was not on our radar to do. We just happened to walk in and they asked for a 2 euro donation to climb up to the top of the church tower. We did it and it might have been the best part in all of Heidelberg. First, the church itself is quite stunning. The hike up was broken into 4 different sections. The last part had a low ceiling but nothing too difficult. The views of the entire city from up there was spectacular!! Really worthwhile. Definitely do it. It's not a bad hike (maybe 200 steps???) but the views were absolutely worth it!!

Include in your walking tour of the Old Town
Nov 2018
Sunday morning in the Old Town while touring on a river boat cruise, we walked the Old Town and stopped here for Mass. As a photographer, this meant that I could only take exterior photos of the church. My gear was a DSLR with a zoom lens. Made white balance adjustments for white balance, otherwise settled for auto functions. The exterior is quite accessible, plenty of space around the church to enable wide
angle photos.

Just go up it!
Sep 2019
For a minimal fee you can go up around 200 steps and enjoy great views. I was surprised more people were not doing this. I really like going up buildings.

Interesting history
Jul 2019 • Couples
We wondered why there wasn’t a “built date” for this cathedral but the history tells the story as it was built and rebuilt several times. Quite interesting history and worth a visit and since it is in the middle of the town there’s no excuse not to step inside and look, read and learn.

It earns all its points by being right in the middle of your Heidelberg panorama
Aug 2019
and it serves its role as "the center of gravity". But frankly you don't even have to bother going inside (you will, I know). It's very basic and it brings absolutely no surprises.
