It really doesn't matter how you travel towards Tecklenburg. Whether you come by car or by bike you will finally arrive at a small parking lot just outside the village center. When you're at that particular parking lot and you look towards the city of Tecklenburg you can't miss the Stadtkirche Tecklenburg. Although we immediately said to ourselves that we wanted to visit this impressive church we first walked our way up to the Marktplatz (Market Square) to see the sights out there. After that we hiked our way up to Burg Tecklenburg, which is the centre of the theater and social life in Tecklenburg. It's therefore very funny to notice that after strolling through some beautiful small streets we finally ended up at the backside of the Stadtkirche Tecklenburg. The site we definitely wanted to see when we first arrived. Right now it was at the end of the afternoon and we were thrilled to see the Stadtkirche Tecklenburg as a highlight at the end of the beautiful day. The church was still open for visitors, so off we went!

Once inside we immediately saw the altar which is the center of the interior design. It's made of a marble top and because this church isn't all that rich, it's modernized with different surfaces covering a wooden structure. The altar still is the most vital piece in church interior design. The present shape of the church is the result of a total restoration in the years 1972 - 1976. We walked around a bit and also visited the cemetery which is just outside the church. This church is a must visit!
