Visited the Collegiate church during our stay in Stuttgart. The contrast between outside and inside is initially a surprise. The outside is of an older (original)style, but I liked the 'new' style interior with wonderful stone and carvings. The light from the windows gave a...More

The style of this church is very different. From the outside it is a very traditional church but once inside it is anything but traditional. The ceiling is amazing, which was done in 2003. It was first built around 1240.

This church was damaged during World War II but has been completely restored. The architecture is a composite from different ages which makes it truly unique. It's obviously a much loved church by the populace.

Nice church to visit when in Stuttgart especially during the Christmas time. It is simple inside but very nice from the outside especially during sunset with all the Christmas stalls around it.

We were touring the Christmas Market in Schillerplatz and decided to give this church a look see. The interior is nothing special but the exterior provided a great backdrop for photos of the colorful Christmas market. This was especially so at dusk with the multi...More
