This is a beautiful cathedral, but the real highlight was seeing the remains of St. Afra and going down into the crypt. Also be sure to check out the wrought iron work separating the church entrance from the nave. One of the gateways is a...More

Pay attention to the service timetables if you don't want to get caught up in one. So much to see and the contrast between the churches is interesting.

Quite unknown but... absolutely one of the most spectacular Baroque church in Germany! Huge scenic "machinery", quite theatrical, in the three imposing painted wood altars.

At the end of Maximillian strasse, a magnificent catholic church with the Lutheran church (smaller and less fancy) attached. Do not miss the collection of Russian style icons.

The smaller church was closed. The main church had services and in progress. A very large structure. Sorry to not be able to stroll the whole internal area. Note: we found an older structure with no roof to the south of the large church. Was...More

Topped by what are almost Russian style onion domes this church looks quite different from the exterior and is well worth a visit to see the three huge carved alters that rise almost to the very high ceiling.
