  Lutheran Church of the Redeemer
by FruitLover

When visiting the Old City, that's, usually, the place I take my guests to begin with.
You have to climb about 200 spiral steps to the top of the tower. [highly reccommended physical exercise].

Although the neo-Romanesque building of the Church of the Redeemer is only 100 years old, it's reach in history and tradition. The history goes back to Charlemagne. He was given the property by the Caliph of Bagdhad, Harun el Rashid, as a present. The emperor - at least so the story goes - had a hospice for pilgrims built on the land. In addition, a large hospital, a church and a monastery were constructed.
