If you are looking for one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in Germany, than this is the place to visit. Completed in the late 1600s, the Elizabethkirche is a fine example of pure Gothic design. There is a well equipped bookshop and while...More

I'd recommend going here with a guide - our guide told us a lot of really interesting history about Marburg and St. Elizabeth here. Inside is a traditional, old church.

Even for people who are not very religious, this simply is a church not to be missed. Beautiful architecture, windows and art, friendly staff. Not sure about the modern style organ. Parking can be a bit of an issue.

If you go to Marburg it might be nice to visit this Gothic church which is one of the earliest. You need to pay for a ticket in order to see the shrine. There are also some fine gold relics.

Entrance is free while ticket is needed to see the tomb. They say it is the model for Cologne cathedral.
