As others have mentioned, we had a little trouble finding Alte Kapelle. It's just around the corner from the more-visited St. Peter's - some tourist maps have it labelled but it still wasn't obvious. (I'll post a picture of the outside - that might help...More

Wow what a shame you cannot wander around this beautiful old chapel as it can only be seen from behind locked bars. Although it has an unassuming exterior it is more beautiful than most Cathedrals. Photography is possible from between the bars. The artwork and...More

The minute you enter this amazing church you are greeted by some of the most colourful frescoes I have seen, the ornate gilded candelabra’s are amazing as is the alter. It is best to sit down in a pew and take a few quiet moments...More

In this beautiful chapel you will see the height of Baroque decoration. The walls practically shimmer with all of the white columns and gilded decorative pieces. The paintings are equally beautiful. The church has been well maintained over the centuries. This is an excellent example...More

This is a beautiful chapel near the Dome. The shrine inside is outstanding. Lots of nice paintings and intrinsic gold plated sculptures. Well worth a visit.

Another beautiful German Cathedral. Amazing what craftsmen and artisans accomplished many years ago! Then to continue to exist centuries later.

It's open all day (7-7). You can't tour when Mass is happening. At lunch you can enter the chapel but you can't walk through it but you can take pictures through an iron gate.

Outside of service times, the church is only visible from behind a locked iron grille at the rear. It's still a splendid view, but only in one direction.
