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.
