The church has many services during the day/evening. I most recently visited the Advent service. Right on the plaza and easily accessible from the Markt center.

The Church is interesting for its place in the history of the city, Germany, and the faith. It is worth a visit.

The church is the only one that we visited in Weimar and it was in many ways spectacular. There is a giant altarpiece by the Cranachs, the grave of Herder, the side altars with graves of the Weimar princes, all splendid. This is a historic...More

The painters were in whitewashing everything so plain white. Detailing picked out in gold, the altar and a few memoria so ornate. The altar pieces are the draw here and are very intricate. The over riding impression is wow that's white.

There were a lot of people visiting this church because of the celebration of Cranach this year so it was difficult to commune with the altarpiece, which is a masterpiece. I found this church rather odd as the architecture is not cohesive. The standard Lutheran...More

This unusual church is tucked into back streets off the centre of town but it well signposted. It is unusual in that it has a bright pink balcony around the sides. The altarpiece is also unusual in that it reminded me of the cloth of...More
