My wife insists on visiting at least one church in every town we visit - and this was an excellent choice, Luther having preached here and Bach performed some pieces as well. It's architecture is quite stunning especially in the snow. The highlight for most is the triptych altarpiece by Lucas Cranach the Elder and his son, some remarkable iconography. The grave of the poet and philosopher, Johann Herder, gives the church its alternative name, and there are several other graves of Weimar notables in side chapels and some ancient grave stones hung on the walls.

The church has many services during the day/evening. I most recently visited the Advent service. Right on the plaza and easily accessible from the Markt center.

The Church is interesting for its place in the history of the city, Germany, and the faith. It is worth a visit.

The church is the only one that we visited in Weimar and it was in many ways spectacular. There is a giant altarpiece by the Cranachs, the grave of Herder, the side altars with graves of the Weimar princes, all splendid. This is a historic church in which Luther preached and Bach performed his newly composed music. The church is also very beautiful from outside. Not many tourists come here, especially later in the day...
