The church is easy to find, a mere few minutes from the central station, very well-kept and clean, very catholic with its tons of religious art (other German churches, protestant, are very raw, the cult of saints not being recognized in the protestant movement). St...More

It’s taken me near on 8 years to visit St Ursula’s. It’s been on my list that long! However every time I’ve tried, the church and/or the Goldene Kammer has been closed. But today I phoned ahead to check, and it was open! Step into...More

This is one of the 12 romanesque churches in the city. Architecturally, it is not the nicest. There are a few frescoes left in the church as well as lots of statues. The altar houses the reliquary of St Ursula. However, the reason to visit,...More
