Great old structure which is still used today as a stop for pilgrims traveling on the Way of St. James to Santiago de Compostela. The high altar dates from about 1370 and it also contains great works of art from the schools of Veit Stoß and Michael Wolgemut, Albrecht Dürer's teacher. A true place of tranquility and definitely worth a visit.

The church is of gothic style. Unfortunately the Romanesque chapel built in the thirteenth century was pulled down. It is not a big church but it’s very well bedecked. It has a single nave. It’s worth being visited and to go there the promenade from St. Lorenz church is rather pleasant. Maybe the most interesting part thereof is the high altar with its reredos from the fourteenth century. The organ is a very good one. Therefore, if the occasion arises of listening to it, for instance at a concert, it shouldn’t be missed. Regretfully enough, the church was badly damaged during the second World War but it was adequately restored

Really inspiring to see the old structire. Very interesting how it was built and preserved. The architecture is typically German and a well worth visit

A stop along the Camino Santiago. An enjoyable spot with some decent artwork - spotlessly maintained. A warm and welcoming environment.

Stopped by on a Sunday to see the rebuilt church. Not a grand place but I could see it as a nice place to reflect.
