Stadtkirche St Michael

Church in Jena

This late-Gothic church, one of the largest in Thuringia, is famous for having Martin Luther’s original bronze gravestone, modelled on a portrait by Lucas Cranach the Elder (there’s another in the Schlosskirche of Wittenberg that is actually a 19th-century replica). Begun in 1380, St Michael's assumed something like its present form in 1506.
