This sandstone church presents an interesting example of church architecture and has clearly been refurbished very recently. I do like its very simple lines.

The red stone church is located on the Marktplatz and surrounded by restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops. It is a simple church and you can have a look inside if you are interested.

Very basic insides. Was Catholic then protestant. Nicely kept inside but nothing special. Female Holy Spirit was a theme with some extra art placed there.
