Sebaldus Church is worth the visit (entry EUR 2). It shows are very nice combination of roman and gotic style of building impressive churches. A galery of picture shows the destroyed church after WW II. and you will see it today. A great job.

Very beautiful gothic church both outside and inside. Youre supposed to give a 2 Euro donation upon entry according to their website. Silent, striking and ethereal, definitely worth a visit.
