We would have missed this church had it not been for the Bach organ music coming from the interior. The outside is being repaired or renovated. When we got inside we found a lovely baroque church with painted walls and ceilings. This is not usually...More

An unexpected find on the way from Romanische Theater station to the Dom. Different from typical churches in Germany. Beautiful ceiling paintings. Worth visiting.
