“Light and airy”
Reviewed October 6, 2010

The first church was anno 1136 and exeeded ¼ of the present church. In the outer wall there is a small chapel with sculptures. This medieval cathedral was demolished during the Prince-Bishop Julius Echter because it was just too big. The new church was created 1610 to 1615, a Hall church. The chancel is the impressive sophisticated component from the 17th century. The main church has a very fine carved wooden altarpiece by Riemenschneider, who was an important master sculptor in Southern Germany in the late Middle Ages. The church is light and airy. At the ceiling are some flower-like painted. We were told it had somenting to do with the rosehood, but I have forgotten exactly what…
