Wonderful old church. You must go up to the top. The gentleman who does the informative talk up there was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The views from the top are amazing!

The most interesting part of the church is the memorial to the paratroopers. You can also take the elevator up to the bell tower for a great view of the city. The church was rebuilt after the war.

Quite an impressive lift! Take it in summer or during sunny autumn/ winter days for the fog could clog the view in the far horizon. Worth a try 😇

There's an amazing History to this church which I'm sure you're aware of. We loved the sculpture of the paratroopers, my great uncle could well be one of those men. I guess the main attraction for most people is the view of the bridge which...More

Church is under renovation and probably will be for a bit. Church was destroyed in war but rebuilt. Good info boards outside. Only downside was having to pay to go inside. I can understand charging for the elevator ride to the top of the tower...More

The tower is undergoing repair work, so is surrounded by scaffolding (so is ugly to look at). But, inside, there is a lift (elevator) that takes one up to the 8th floor where they can get views of the city. If one dares, they can...More
