Église des Augustins

With a nave with three aisles and broken arches resting on round pillars, this church contains furnishings that are a fine example of the Baroque period. A gilded wooden retable with fake marble painting by Peter and Jacob Spring represents scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary, dominates the main altar. On either side of the entrance to the choir, retables are from the workshop of Reyff.
