“What craftsmanship!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

This was a very small church compared to the others we had been in, but it was very ornately decorated for a Lutheran church from the 18th century.

“Carved Altar and Organ Case”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

This church, tucked on an Altstadt side street, has a few unusual features. Several front pews have "double-opposed" pews, allowing people to sit facing the altar; and then switch sides to listen to the minister speaking from a centrally-located pulpit.

The wooden altar is beautifully carved in Baroque style, highlighted with paint and gilt. The carved organ case high above the altar is also quite nice. Ironically, the columns are painted in a crude, ersatz "marble" pattern -- certainly not to the high artistic standards of the carving! (We visited this on a walking tour, and the guide had a key to let us in. Check on availability.)
