A quite impressive building. Compared to many other churches this looks to be in a very good condition. Unfortunately it was closed when I visited so I only could enjoy it from the outside.

This church is not frequented by many tourists as it's not in the main area but the size of it and the music organ inside maybe a reason for you to visit it.

Beautiful old church not far from the city centre. Lots of interesting decorations and good acoustics. I recommend this as a place for concerts.

When I went there the organ was playing which enhanced my visit, it is near the Design and Architectural Museums, so good to visit if you are seeing those.

A bit off the beaten path so felt "holy" to me and was able to pray without all the tourist hordes clicking away constantly. Please contribute a few Euros on your way out, if you value the serenity it provides.
