Jesuitekirche is a beautiful Jesuit church. We were on a group tour and were only allowed to step inside the church due to time constraints. I would love to go back and tour it.

When you arrive, it's almost difficult to tell if the church is open or not. No signage or details on time. We didn't think it was open, till we saw some people leave. Once inside, the church is stunning, with pictures, statues and illustrations. The...More
