The Lorenz Church or St. Lawrence, is a Gothic Church that stands in the place of where the Lawrence Chapel once stood. Once again, it is a very old Church with beginnings from 1243.
By the time I reached this Church it was closed.
It was Sunday, and it closes at 4pm, so be aware of this if you wish to see the inside.
I was disappointed, but couldn't do anything about it. The outside has some nice architecture, and the inside has lots to be admired.
