Loved this church. So pretty inside and out. Wish we could have explored the upper levels.ots of details and colour but not over the top like so many other churches/cathedrals. Interesting to see some of the old frescoes too.

Okay, I'm an old churches guy...like a moth to a flame. Nice, smaller church worth stepping inside for photos, and, of course, to pay respect.

Well, on my 5th time in Bacharach, I finally went into this church. I wish I had gone sooner. Not big, not overwhelming, but a very nice church. Nice organ, interesting pianting on one of the walls.

It is a simple but beautiful church in a very attractive town. Don't miss the ruins behind the church.

It's kind if amazing when you look at this beautiful church and realize it's the 'new' church that replaced the old one when it burned down. The remnants of the old one are still there - just behind on the hillside. Both are amazing pieces...More

St. Peter is a typical example for the Rhine valley churches of the late Roman period completed in 1269. The latest great restauration inside has been done between 1992 and 1995.

This was originally a Catholic church but became less ornate during the Reformation so the interior is a little bland and id done in a combination of Romanesque and Gothic.
