Awesome in the middle of city center to visit and feel stress-free. It is well maintained and architecture tells that it is very historic.

Coming out of the railway station the first building to catch the eye is the wonderful simple but massive spire of the Petrikirche. Strangely, it’s only been there since 1981. The original one collapsed in 1752, and was only replaced when the church was rebuilt...More

The altar is amazing. Interiors are simple. The church itself looks big and the location is good. The christmas market was just outside. So the timing of the visit was good. I will better visit the rheinholdskirche.

Looks more impressive on the outside, not much to see inside, Which was a bit disappointing. However, more reconstruction is expected, it's worth visiting anyway.

The inner architecture matched the beauty of the outer and the enormity of the church added furthermore to the beautiful appearance. A lovely place to see and a nice change from the normal bustling nature of the city.

Nice architecture, but nothing caught my eye. For me the church is just typical of the city's style.
