The church is beautiful, good acoustics, but the concert was extremely boring, even 1st rank seats were not good

Glorious church started in mid 1300s. Absolutely stunning painted wooden ceiling from 1500s. Really enjoyed the experience

Mid morning we started out and heard music from the church. An organist and trumpet player were rehearsing for a concert in 2 days and we were able to hear bits of a Bach concerto that sent our hearts soaring. The women who manned the gift area were really helpful and the church was quite well kept and full of presence. We count it as one of the little 'presents' we were given on this trip to have dropped in here.

The ceiling of this church is adorned with the most amazing murals. They usually have mirrors to help you view in detail without having to strain your neck. When you've finished being amazed by the ceiling, take a look at the stones on the floor. There are numerous engravings to commemorate those buried under the church, but what is really interesting are the pictograms. I have NO idea what they represent, but I've never seen anything like it anywhere.
