Situated near the Town Hall, the church can be recognized by a three hundred year old clock at the outside near the entrance. That's all but please go in, pay the modest fee and enjoy one of the most beautiful churches in the world. The...More

Lutheran Church with uniquely designed wall clock! Beautiful church in the center of town. Lots of stained windows. The altar is another unique feature of this church. The interior of the church is especially impressive. Definitely worth a visit and photo opportunity.

Siting just off the main square we were lucky to visit this church whilst a service was in full flow. this resulted in not being able to explore the church, but we were entertained by the choir. Very Good.

Beautiful church in the centre of the old city. Very dark inside. Wish there was more light but it has a nice character to it. Love the paintings. They allow picturs inside as well and there's a small entrance fee. The burnt bell from the...More
