Beautiful architecture at the front door but unfortunately the inside looked like a community center.

The exterior is old and part of a beautiful complex which includes the City Hall , located in a busy Place . The interior is very modern in style and is very quiet and peaceful ! A big contrast !

This church was in the midst of the Christmas markets. The exterior was more interesting than the interior but worth a visit.

Beautiful old church surrounded by pretty Christmas market vendor booths. The church had a life size carved wooden Nativity Scene in the manger so beautiful.

This is another lovely old church known nowadays as City Church but I much prefer St. Johannes der Taufer. It is a Jesuit Church standing in the corner of Jesuitenplatz. Although dating from the 13th century it's interior is quite modern.
