Get around[edit]

See[edit]

The Peace Church is on the UNESCO World Heritage List - dating from the 1600s and built out of unusual materials (wood and hay), it resembles a theatre or opera house more than a church. Covered top to bottom in beautiful, old, folk-art-style paintings, the Peace Church is absolutely worth a visit.

Behind the Peace Church is an old German cemetery which as of July 2008 was completely overgrown, giving it a creepy atmosphere and making it a great destination for photographers and seekers of the arcane.

Do[edit]

Attend the summer Bach Festival in July. Concerts are held in the Church of Peace and other venues in the town. For further details go to [1] and follow the links through 'schedule of concerts' and 'Bach festivals'.
