Jesuitenkirche, a baroque building dating to the 18th century and belonging to the catholic community. The interior was quite unadorned and white but featured a nicely decorated main altar. Through a door on the side a small museum featuring sacred art was also a nice...More

Worth noting if visiting here soon. The church is under renovation and we weren't able to enter. The exterior of the building well worth a look. Some good statuary including one of St Loyola.

very different - austere in all the white. not your typical with the unique carved creature above the entrance and the mesmerising prism of a cross dangling at the centre.

Jesuits' church is in the center of Heidelberg. It is impossible to miss this stylish Baroque church built in XVIII century.

What a contrast to almost all the churches you see in europe. Most are somewhat dark and dreary. This one was almost all white and very bright inside. A nice change.

The white interior of this building is impressive. Huge paintings are fascinating. Carving is exquisite in its detail. If you get bored--impossible!--go outside for more sculptures and rose-colored stone.

When you enter you are faced with pure white walls. Beautiful frescos. It does have a striking pulpit and alter.

Visited this church and was amazed at the Baroque architecture and design of the place. It is mostly white on the inside, and quite modest with decor. It has a lovely atmosphere and the outside facade is beautiful as well. Nice church to visit while...More

This Catholic church is quite different from its nearby protestant neighbour being a stark interior white compared to sandstone. We liked its serenity; especially as an organist was practicising whilst we were there.

We were there Sunday evening and one was about to begin, if I remember it was around 6:30 pm. The schedule was posted on the door.
