Alte Kapelle, Regensburg
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Relatively plain and unassuming from the outside, Alte Kapelle is world-famous for its highly decorated Rococo interior. One of the city's major attractions, the core of the church is believed to be well over a thousand years old. The building's Gothic vaulted ceilings, along with several other main features, were added to the structure during the Middle Ages. Most of the rich interior decorations date to the 18th century, when Rococo was much in fashion all over Europe. Walk inside to see the site's famous image of the Virgin Mary holding the infant Jesus. Remember: You can take photos only if no church service is in progress while you're there.
