Like other reviewers, we also happened upon the Peterskirche during a free organ concert, and it does indeed bring the place alive. I thoroughly recommend strategically timing your visit, if at all possible.
The church looks small and dainty on the outside, sitting just behind the large and square mall strip in an inviting little alcove. At night in particular, it's all lit up from beneath and looks especially lovely.
Once inside, you're bombarded by the sumptuous Baroque-style design. Burnished gold abounds, and the paintings on the dome are stunning. At night, the flickering light of the (fake, I think?) candles lend the interior a warm glow. If it were any larger, the effect would probably be gaudy, but as it's quite an intimate space it's instead rather charming.
It's the perfect place to unwind after a busy day, and just soak in this beautiful little church. Especially, as mentioned, if you can listen to the organ filling the space too.
During organ concerts, donations are accepted as you exit, but not mandatory. The feel of the church was definitely welcoming.
