We were just strolling around the Hauptwache and happened to enter this church at noon, when they hold a brief service. The sermon we heard was all about inclusion and compassion, with very current references and examples. We left feeling inspired to do better.

I attended the Easter Service + communion and realized that we have only been in the USA for a few years. This old church is pre-dating the discovery of America by many centuries.

The church has a light, airy interior with some nice stained glass. At regular intervals during the week there are free organ recitals in the afternoon, lasting about half an hour.
