This church sits in the Marktplatz and its spire can be seen from far away. It is the main church in Heidelberg and is lovely. When I walked in, I was surprised by how light and airy it was inside unlike so many corgis churches. The inside is a rosy color and there are carvings and art about. One of... More

This is a pretty church and it's interesting to see inside of a Protestant church to contrast it with all the Catholic churches you are more likely to see while in Europe. Don't miss the 4' tall Lego man Martin Luther figure!

This church in the centre of the Old Town was great to visit, especially on a cold and very wet November afternoon! It's spire dominates the town and is a good pointer to the market place. It has some lovely stained glass windows and is very peaceful.

The church is located in the heart of the old town. When we were there there was an organ recital going on that really enhanced the ambience. For a small fee you can walk to the top of the tower. The views are expansive. Worth the effort.

The church is sited in the market place and when seen from the castle dominates the vista. It is an Evangelica [Protestant] Gothic building with a striking yet largely unadorned interior. This building, the third on the site dates from the 1400's. Certainly worth visiting.

This old church is right in the middle of the town. I went here on a tour bus. On the day and time that I was there you couldn't go inside. But the outside is very interesting and the location at the center of things was very nice.

Be sure to stop in this beautiful old church when you visit the old city of Heidelberg. The church is located in the very center of the old city and there is also much more to do in the area.
