This is an amazing building, beautifully restored after horrendous damage during WW2. The organ pipes are in themselves a wonderful piece of modern art. There are some lovely stained glass windows, and a really stunning altarpiece.

This Lutheran "hall church" was originally built in the 14th century and restored iin 1952 after suffering damage from WWII air raids.
