“Beautiful but not over the top”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

A lovely church. Rococo interior but fairly restrained. Some very fine stucco work. Two beautiful chapels in the crypt. Some modern furnishings that blend very well with older architectural style.

“Lovely sandstone building”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

This was a lovely church to visit, no charge for entry and plenty to see. Lots of paintings some a bit graphic such as the beheading of John the Baptist but very good. Well worth a visit and easy to find as it next to the Cathedral.

“Built over the tomb of St. Kilian”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

Romanesque Basilica, built over the tomb of St. Kilian who, along with his companions, were murdered as missionaries anno 689. St Adalbero founded the Abbey of Neumünster in 1060 and the first canons of St. Stephan made their entry. The newly founded monastery got a two floors Church. 11th century choir, 13th century ornated Tower. 1710-1716 Huge dome and Baroque facade. 1788 Baroque interior (brothers Zimmermann), early stone work by Tilman Riemenschneider and a beautiful sandstone Madonna in a pillar niche of the dome. 1799 West-choir demolished. Secularisation 19th Century and monastery was abrogated, the Church was still used by fraternities. In 1945 bombing continued structually saved, interior burnt out for a major part, yet there are still some excellent individual works from the middle ages and Baroque.
