Create an itinerary including Eglise Saint-Thomas
Listen to the same organ Mozart used in 1778 at Eglise Saint-Thomas, a late-Gothic Protestant church. This church is internationally renowned for its historic and musically significant organs: the 1741 Silbermann organ played by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1778, and a 1905 organ built by Fritz Haerpfer. The church's impressive collection includes a late-Gothic representation of Saint Michael, the second-largest fresco of its kind in France. Many of the medieval leaded windows are still intact, including the rose stained glass toward the front of the building. This Protestant church is also known for the famous, richly decorated sarcophagus of Bishop Adelochus (1130), and the huge, late-Baroque mausoleum of Marshall Maurice de Saxe (1777), created by Jean-Baptiste Pigalle. Other remarkable monuments include the Renaissance tombstone of Nikolaus Roeder von Tiersberg (1510), which is notable for its realistic depiction of his decaying corpse.

  • A nice church that is lesser visited then the Cathedral. However, less commercial and therefore preferred by us. Certainly worth a visit.

  • We just happened upon this church in our exploration of the city, and we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. The organ Mozart played alone is worth seeing, but there is much to enjoy here.

  • So welcoming! The service was in three languages - French, German and English (the English might have been for my benefit!). Lovely sermon (in French) about Mark's account of the Greatest Commandment. All ages represented in a good congregation of about 60. A young woman played the flute beautifully and the acoustics made the sound even better.
  • Would be nice to ask if they hold any concerts in the days of your visit.
  • After I was not let into the Cathedral, I checked this church and it was amazing. Interesting historical building with traces of Romanesque and Gothic styles, lots of interesting tombstones, some medieval frescoes, stained glass windows, beautiful light and spiritual atmosphere. The admission is free, but there is a donation box. Well worth visiting!
  • Interesting to visit this site. Being a Protestant Church with lot of manuscript and sculptures.
  • Nice church with some very old relics and sculptors . I love the high ceilings and columns in the churches and cathedrals in Europe. They’re all so nice.
