  • The church is well located in the centre and is ideal as a photo motif. Other sights are also in close range. We were very lucky that during our visit a choir happened to hold a rehearsal for an upcoming concert. So we had the opportunity to sit down to admire the church and listen to the beautiful sounds.

  • ... to the Christ Church. Inside rather sparsely equipped. Most interesting for me the memorial plaque of the fallen of the First World War
