Wolfsturm (Old Town Wall)
St. Peter in Ketten. The earliest forerunner of the building nowadays used as a Catholic parish church was a wooden church built in 940. In 959 followed another church building on this spot, this time with a stone foundation. Today’s church was built between the 12th and 14th centuries. The oldest parts of the building display Romanesque style elements, although the church’s overall character is Early Gothic. Peculiarities in the décor are a Doomsday painting above the quire arch and a stone Madonna, both remnants of the original décor, as well as a wooden Madonna from about 1450. The parish church has been lavishly renovated and now shines with a new radiance.
