Imposing neo-Gothic church with impressive Sandtner organ

With its beautiful front this neo Gothic church faces the spar park and the “Four Towers”. The church was built by the architect Eduard Zais. Amongst the excellently preserved decorations there are the wall paintings, the high alter, the pews and the glass paintings of the windows. Most remarkable are the new alter (1985) with its pelican’s nest, the font and other works made by the sculptor Gerhard Rumpf. With a portion of wit the artist designed the reading desk in 1988. In the “vast net of the church” wriggle fish you can’t find in a biology book, e.g. the “Bad Ems fish” or the “Emperor Wilhelm fish” – unmistakable because of its beard. The “Sandner organ” (1995) is impressive, too.
