A really nice Lutheran church to step into, especially when it's cold! Calm and peaceful inside so you can take a break from walking around sightseeing.

This church from the 1890’s is set on a hill, with imposing steeples. Inside it’s quite simply decorated, when we visited an organist was playing on the rather large organ in the gallery. Nice spot to stop off whilst walking in the area.
