The architecture of St. Mary’s is lovely from the outside. The inside is not as beautiful as the other churches in the city. It is free though so worth a look inside.

The outside is so beautiful, while the inside is remarkably plain and simple and rather surprising! The gold statue on the top of the tower turns in the wind!

We found the church to be a good place of quiet to escape the crowds of a hot summer day. On our trip we have visited many grand cathedrals and churches, but this place had an appeal all its own.

Something of an emotional experience to see just how much was destroyed in the one and three quarter hours of terrifying bombing of 16 March 1945. This gives added value to the few original mediaeval sculptures displayed in the church. Of interest to British vistors...More

St. Mary's chapel looks like a new church though it was built from 1377-1480. It is on the market square. The exterior is beautiful gothic style but inside the church is a bit boring. Was it perhaps the colour?. The madona statues are beautiful, one...More

A traditional late gothic cathedral both outside and inside. This Church is not as extravagant as many of Europes huge monumental statement churches - but still it's filled With interesting art and wonderful stone carvings.
