St. Lawrence Church

St. Lawrence Church Uwe Niklas

The building of St. Lawrence begun about 1250. Originally built as a three-aisled basilica in the high Gothic style the church was later extended with an imposing late Gothic hall choir (1439-1477). It has a magnificent west facade with a splendid portal which is richly decorated with statuary and rose windows (mid-14th century). The two impressive towers are 80 and 81 meters high. The most important works of art inside are the Annunciation by Veit Stoß (1518), the tabernacle by Adam Kraft (1496) as well as many other medieval altars, memorial plaques and stained glass windows.
