We found the church to be a good place of quiet to escape the crowds of a hot summer day. On our trip we have visited many grand cathedrals and churches, but this place had an appeal all its own.

A traditional late gothic cathedral both outside and inside. This Church is not as extravagant as many of Europes huge monumental statement churches - but still it's filled With interesting art and wonderful stone carvings.

I've always loved having this beautiful church as the backdrop of market square. .....and nothing is more deserving a visit during the Wurzburg Christmas festival.
