This is a nice very old church. It has some beautiful frescos that date back to the 15th century. You visit this church quickly and take everything in.

The church crypt dates back to 11th century and the tower was started in 1469. Reconstruction was completed in 1891. Great view of this church from the river.

A surprise, the parish church of St. Goar, though Protestant, retains much older artistic elements from its days as a Catholic Church. This includes the crypt of St. Goar, reportedly dating back to the XIIth century and extensive primitive frescoes of the late XVth century. The church itself was the first in the area to be designated Protestant based on... More

He is actually buried in... More
