The stained glass windows, a gift from Emperor Wilhelm II, remain the building's major feature.

  • Very beautiful church and you can see the German influence with the architecture. In the central business district area.

  • classic church architecture, placed on a strategic position, so you can't really miss it. On the other hand it's in a middle of a roundabout, which devalues it's architecture if you ask me.

  • We were lucky enough to be there on a Wednesday, because on Wednesdays and Fridays you can get into the church. You just have to go to their office and ask for a person to come and open the church...
