You may as well wander in while you are in Old Town Heidelberg... it's free so snap a few pics, light a candle and move on... Nothing really breath-taking, but it's worth the time to walk in and look around.

I wasn't able to go up the tower because my friends were "saving themselves" for the Castle. But, I wanted to do it and 2 Euros is worth it. The inside is very pretty and the organ was awesome looking. Definitely worth a stop in!

I attended the Sunday morning service and was blown away by the experience! The service is protestant and in German, I am not either of those but I do follow a christian religion. They only have 1 service on Sunday mornings, the bells will ring loudly for 10 minutes before it starts to remind you. There are plenty of wooden seats, the locals sit up front which leaves many open seats in the back for others. The service is long and didn't seem welcoming of young toddlers. The church has beautiful stained glass windows that have been replaced over the years which was interesting to view. The church is fairly plain inside but understandably if you read about it's history. This church is in active use and during my stay nearby in the Spring we saw many wedding parties walking to and from the church. A beautiful church inside and out!

You will not find an ancient structure, but this church is a modernized example of the old sanctuary it has been in the past. Sit down and quietly reflect for a while, and you may find that an organist is playing-we were lucky to have this experience.
