The origin of this Lutheran church is more than 10 centuries old. Of course it was extensively damaged during World War II and was perhaps more extensively rebuilt afterward. But today it is an extraordinary Gothic-style church. It has the largest organ in Germany. Its tall windows are decorated with numerous stained glass panels. Old wood-carved alter pieces lined the sides. Scheduled guided tours are offered and organ music played to enhance the visit. Wonderful!

One of the churches that was badly damaged during the war and rebuilt. The stories surrounding the reconstruction is heart warming.

You know the story by now; built, bombed, rebuilt. Worth seeing, not least for the surviving medieval paintings.

Well it is a church, nothing extra, but the entrance fee is voluntary. What I found interesting was interactive screens placed inside, that kids were using to get more information about the place.

St Lorenz Church is the first imposing monument to see after emerging from the underground station. An impressive specimen of Gothic architecture rebuilt to excellence.
You can admire the vitraux windows, the statues and the architectural features and spend as much time as you deem necessary. Great scenic pictures.
