We visited on a Sunday in October. From the outside it is spectacular. On the inside it looked like a community center, nothing original. So if you don't get a chance to get inside you haven't missed anything.

Located in the Marktplatz, the city's main square, with a beautiful late Gothic interior and a tower that has panoramic views of the city.

This church dominates the Marktplatz in Heidelberg and is located opposite the town hall. It is beautiful inside. The acoustic is great for organ recitals. Entrance is free but if you want to climb the tower there's a small charge.

If you're like me, you've seen a lot of cathedrals. After a while, they tend to run together in your memory, except the ones you can climb to the top of. This is another church, not domed, but still pretty large. It's not baroque, not...More

The review that "periandro" wrote helps define this church as outstanding. I was treated to an organ concert while there- a very talented musician played beautifully on that highly valued pipe organ. I believe it is one of the few pipe organs that have some...More
