  • Renaissance church of the 16TH century that made us remember the churches of Florence. In the niches there are images of the members of the Wittelsbach family. We could not enter only saw the facade.

  • This is the largest Renaissance church in Northern Europe. The façade is made up of three horizontal planes, remember a civic building. Within a beautiful Renaissance choir and the high altar by Friedrich Sustri and Wendel Dietrich. Nice big shovel of Schwarz.
