The most interesting sight is not Peterskirche itself but a beautiful building behind - University library. It is not even possible to take a normal picture of the church, because it is surrounded by other buildings.

Beautiful old church. Makes you think about how it was constructed in the era of no power tools. Lots of wooden supports are visible displaying the fine woodwork that was done hundreds of years ago.

If you are a student of early architecture, stained glass and high ceilings, do not miss this magnificent church. It is just a show stopper.

Very clean looking Church, a bit on the modern side, with interesting chromo cross or whatever it is. The organ is massive.

We took pictures fro the outside and the couch was open so we decided to go in. This church is stunningly beautiful. The interior is amazing. I would rate this as a must see in Heidelberg.

The church has an old style architecture and is beautiful and peaceful. A walk to the tower is a must here. Its a little strenous but worth it since you get a view of the city, the river and the castle from up here.
