It really is a nice building, although some renovations was being done. We even got a brief church-music concert, which sounded really good and made the experience even intenser. Enjoyed it. Recommend it!

This church is beautiful, inside and out. The most unusual feature is the exquisitely-carved Hans Seyffer wooden alter dating from the 15th century.

St Kilian’s church – well worth a visit for the beautifully carved wooden altar screen, some interesting stained glass windows and, at the entrance, some curious stone carvings of strange animals and humans with bird faces.

Beautiful church in the heart of Heilbronn. Definitely want to check out the wooden alter, such as the ceiling inside of the church. Historical building and worth viewing.
