  Tower of the Old Church

The history of the Old Church starts back in the 13th century. However the building you can see now is from the 14th century. The church became bigger and bigger during those years and a meeting place for entrepreneurs and a hiding place for the poor. After the Alteration the paintings and sculptures were all destroyed, but the ceiling and glass are still present in the state they used to be. In 1724 the organ was built and since then noting much has changed.

For a fee you can climb the tower from where you will have a great view!
