Approaching Lorenzkirche (St.Lawrence's Church) I thought the very ornate façade would be all there was to see because it had become a Lutheran church, but it seems to have retained the earlier art. A German friend explained that paradoxically whereas many Catholic churches in Germany didn't preserve their medieval art, the Lutheran churches, which one would think opposed to depictions of saints, did. Good thing too, since this church (after its restoration from WWII damage) has much beautiful sculpture, wood carving, and stained glass. We encountered a very informative volunteer guide who explained the windows to us. Correctly, too.
