This Church is conveniently located and is free. While simply adorned, that is part of its charm. If you enjoy superb wood carving, you'll find it here as well. A church doesn't have to grand and opulent to be enjoyed, and this very old church...More

I have visited more exciting churches but I did stop in for a quick peek. I enjoy seeing churches but others may not. It is centrally located so stop in for a peek if walking by.

This old (1285) church is the oldest in town. It is very simple outside and in. There is little artwork inside but the altar is another church by Tilman Riemenschneider. It is located near the Castle Gate and the Herrnbrunnen.

Don't miss the Tilman Riemenschneider altar of St Francis. There are also 15th and 16th century sculptures.

We stopped in here while in town. The doors were opened and we walked straight in. The place is very peaceful and not overrun by people wanting to snap pictures. This is not a fancy cathedral but a living place of worship so please show...More

Being right across the street from our hotel, we couldn't miss the Franziskanerkirche, but be aware that it is open only during specific hours of the day (14:00-16:00 on Sundays). We found it very worthwhile, and as interesting as Jacob's Church, which is nearby.
