This beautiful little church is a real surprise, for those used to the more austere interiors of Lutheran churches in (say) Leipzig.

Absolutely gorgeous, the cloud painted ceiling, the Ruben copy of "The Last Supper" etc. are fantastic. We're coming back for the Chamber Music Festival that is performed in this church, the perfect venue for just such an occasion.

Remember when churches were open to the public? It's a shame that many see a need to lock their doors. This church is beautiful from the outside, but I had wanted to see the inside of the 1647 church, which Internet pictures show to be...More
