Alte Kapelle, Regensburg
(4.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We had the good fortune to experience the Church in full lighting and this in full splendour during the all souls church service again. A dream - certainly comparable to the Wies Church. There is nothing better of Baroque glory?

  • Its pretty short glamorous for kids and free. I guess there is no reason not to stop by on your way yo the Dom. 
  • Perfectly restored, richly decorated Baroque church. The Baroque highlight in Regensburg. The nave is blocked by grid during the day, you can take place but on benches in front of the bars and look into it (for hours!) It is worth to investigate the opening times on the website of the parish. I recommend participation in a church service or a public guided tour. Between May and October, these take place every last Tuesday of the month at 11:00, take approximately 45 minutes and costs 3 euros.

  • a glimse of paradise! where heaven meets earth!!! on of the most finest churches ever!
  • Beautiful interior
  • Apart from the inside, in Baroque style, the most interesting thing is the icon (which dates back to shortly after the year 1000) in the chapel of access on the South side, which is likely to go almost unnoticed because the environment and does not return it the importance it deserves.

  • So much space, splendour and understatement of wealth shows the Church rarely like this. Nice different concerts - if also obviously religious Middle - Saturday afternoon (when visiting plan).

  • Great Church, inconspicuous from the outside. Inside, more beautiful than the DOM
