The church close to the cathedral has been used by the protestant parish of the mostly catholic city since 1866. From the foundation until 1803 it had belonged to a Benedictine monastery.
The church was built in the early 11th century. In 1123 the crypt underneath the choir was consecrated by Bishop Meinwerk who was buried here after his death in 1123. The plain Romanesque church has a rather archaic appearance. Don?t miss the crypt (descent from both transepts) and the abbot?s chapel in the southern steeple on the first floor.
