Beautiful church. Take a moment to collect the history and simply beauty. The tall and some stained windows. The wooden icon, paintings, arch’s and altars upstairs and downstairs. Take a breathing .... Think of the way it was .... Photos representative.

We stopped in for a quick look during our town walk. The Altar of the Holy Blood is very impressive but the main part of the church is also pretty.

The first thing that strikes one as they enter in the long aisle to the wonderful stained glass windows and the Riemenschneider altar. This was one of the highlights of my trip to Germany. Then, wondrously, there was an organ recital + another Riemenschneider altar...More

The beautiful church dates back to the fourteenth century and is home to many beautiful stained glass windows and wood carvings including the Christmas boat and the famous holy blood altarpiece. Make sure you visit the small altar on the first floor as well.

Exquisite carvings in this church. The one by Tillman Riemenschneider, in the back and up the stairs, is just breathtaking.

A beautiful medieval church that took over 100 years to build (1311-1484) and has two tall towers. The inside has tall narrow stained glass windows over 600 years old, a vaulted ceiling, and an open airy feeling. Two things not to miss are the Twelve...More
