This towering late-Gothic collegiate church is now a Protestant municipal parish church. The exterior looks rather ordinary, but when you enter the flat-ceilinged interior of the church with its neo-Gothic empores and chancellery (1846/47), you are surprised by the unique accumulation of works of art...More

It's very easy to find and visit. It is unique in its design and quite interesting. Do pass up the opportunity to visit if you're in Wertheim.

The interesting exterior drew us to this church. It has been either Lutheran or Catholic in the past, depending upon the views of the town leaders. Currently it is a Protestant church. The altar area does not have the usual Biblical figures and pictures. Rather,...More
