Peterskirche

Interesting
This imposing 15C church with five naves overlooks the River Neisse. The west doorway (1235) was part of the old Romanesque church, but was reworked in Late Gothic style. Inside, the three central naves are embellished with a fine stellar vault and bay windows decorated with tracery. Baroque high altar (1695) by sculptor Georg Heermann, with an altarpiece depicting the Ascension of Christ. Large organ (1703) by Eugenion Casparini.
