Walking around the old town we called in briefly on Christmas Eve when there was a service happening, that seemed very nice as it seemed to be involving children a lot . We returned today when it was empty to have more of a look...More

St. Johannis was a Catholic Church located along the shopping street in Rothenburg. It was red in color but looked simple on the external facade. If you paid a visit inside, you would find that it was equally simple, modern and peaceful inside. Nice to...More

The audio guide is a great deal! two tour (art history and spiritual), two organ concerts, and several options for additional information. The gift shop sells items made in the sister city in an African nation. Beautiful woodcrafts with religious and non-religious themes.

Quite simple for a catholic church but probably as much because of the purist protestant competition which dominates the town. Lovely slanting light through the arch windows. For once understatement wins the day.

This is a very, very old Catholic church and it is still in service today. It is worth a visit to see the simplicity of the inside.

Let me preface this by stating that I am an old church fan, and Catholic so my comments come from my particular cultural background. Firstly, Rothenburg was/is a "Protestant" town and fought on the Protestant side during the 30 years war. This is the only...More
