It‘s a reason for a little detour although still in the Old City of Regensburg... It‘s covered with a „greenhouse“, sometimes there are even concerts!

The outside portal is beautiful but opening the heavy doors and going inside felt like time travel. The interior has a very ancient feeling and was a unique opportunity to see and feel the religious world of the1200’s.

As the oldest church in Regensburg, this is one I really enjoyed. A very good idea protecting portals by glass, although photographers might find it annoying to get their perfect shot. This is one church worth visiting and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

The entrance is unusual, and worth a visit. The church it opens up into is also a nice place to see. Very serene.
