Pretty church

Even on a rainy day, and being overshadowed by the market on Rosh Hashanah, her prettiness can be seen.

Beautiful large church Located right by the old town where the hauptmarkt is located. Each day at noon the clock displays a procession of electors paying homage to the Emperor.

We were lucky enough to be touring and ended mere moments before noon and were able to watch the clock in action. It actually starts a few minutes after noon when we saw it as the bells range for a good while before the trumpets and the drummers started. Definitely worth a stroll around and watch the display.

Like many churches in Europe it's much nicer from the outside than the inside. It is what it looks like and very easy to see walking around the old town.

The first church in Germany that I've experienced. I'm impressed by the harmony which the German play. I love the way they bring music to church, the spirit.
