Felsenkirche, Idar-Oberstein

Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
A protestant church built into a crag that rises above the town, Felsenkirche is an emblem of the small city. Before the structure was consecrated as a church, it served as a fortress that protected the people of the village below during attacks. The outer edifice hides a series of caves that can accommodate more people than appears from the outside. To reach the museum housed inside the castle church, you'll take a tunnel that was added to make it easier for visitors to tour the building.

  • This church you should once have seen. Do you need agile, because you need a lot of stairs (I'm not sure if there is a stair lift is present, may well be, but then you would just contact). My German friends told me that 2 brothers lived on top of the mountain and those 2 were arguing because the one with the wife of the other hunting (or even a romance had). They fought out of anger and out of love and 1 of their mountain fell, however he survived the fall and built from thank this church. Beside that this church and romantic tragedisch story carries with it, it is also a very beautiful and special Church to see and admire.

  • 14th century church built into a crag. A beautiful preserved church with a look out over the town of Idar Oberstein. Many steps up but worth the climb to the front door of the door. Entrance is 2 Euro...  read more »
  • Beautiful little church. It is well worth the climb! " You can be only on foot. In my eyes not to do for wheelchair users or people with walking difficulties. Along the way we multiple benches where you can rest. Tip: the little church is easier to reach from lock Oberstein, then from the square (below). You can park the car at the lock. All in impressive. Is well maintained. The Church inside is really worth to see. (I have several pictures yet). View from the plateau is ook schitterend. When you're there, don't forget to look not to the church-bells.
