  • Providenzkirche is located in the heart of Heidelberg's main street, Hauptstrasse, which you as a tourist in the city saved goes through to discover Heidelberg Altstadt. The Church was built 1659 – 1661 at the invitation of the elector Karl Ludwig, whose personal motto was "Dominus providebit," meaning "the Lord is looking for us". The Church was his special name "Providenzkirke" which means something along the lines of "Residential Church". Since the succession war raged in Heidelberg in 1693, the Church was destroyed during the great fire. In the years 1715-1721 it was rebuilt, and at the end of 1800-century church interior was changed to its current appearance. The simply decorated Chapel is adorned with crown molding on the ceiling. The Gallery running along the sides and at the rear by the organ of the Church shall be borne by the sleek, Corinthian columns. It is natural to see the Church, when we pass it on the trip through the Hauptstrasse, but Providenzenkirche does not have the same level as the nearby Jesuiterkirche and the Heiliggeistkirche.

  • Beautiful and interesting church built in the 17th century is located in the old town. A small, bright, beautiful semi-circular stained-glass Windows. Recommend

  • Old town will be the most obvious Church on main street. History seems to date back to the 1600s, but the architecture is like in the 1700s. I went twice, but one cannot enter. Pay attention to the time.
