The twin onion domed spires of St Peter's Church make a distinctive sight at the end of Grosse Bleiche. The rococo style church dates back as far as 944, and contains an extravagantly interior with 18th century frescoes from Joseph Appiani and a 16th century rood altar from the same Hans Backoffen who sculpted the outrageously colourful Marktbrunnen well in the Marketplace.

Directions: Top of Grosse Bleiche on the right past the Landesmuseum.
