Ladenburg Things to Do: 29 reviews and 86 photos
The catholic church, the old parish church of the town, was first mentioned in 787. Around 1000 a second church was built which uses the remnants of the ancient Roman basilica as foundations.
The oldest part of the church is the Romanesque crypt underneath the choir. The Roman foundation walls are visible from inside.
In the 13th century the choir and the northern steeple were built, a bit later the nave. The second steeple was added in the 15th century.
In 1859 - 1867 the church was renovated and enlarged to the west and the neogothic facade with the main portal was added.
The church is open in the daytime. Access from Kirchenstraße through the western portal.
