Lonely Planet review
This late-Gothic hall church sports intricate net-vaulting and teems with art treasures, most famously the 1479 altar painting by Michael Wohlgemuth (a teacher of Albrecht Dürer) and an emotionally charged pietà (1502) by famous local sculptor Peter Breuer. There are also some ultra-rare Protestant confessionals. The facade is festooned with some 70 stone sculptures depicting the apostels and Reformation figures. An English pamphlet has details.
