Red Route - Frauenkirchplatz


The craftsmen influenced the character of the southern part of the town over hundreds of years, while the so-called Patrician Town developed north of the Weinmarkt.


The “Church of Our Lady” owes its current form to the Late Gothic movement. The interior frescos from C.15th, the work of Hans Strigel the Younger, are some of the most significant of their kind in southern Germany. The Frauenkirche was used “simultaneously” by both Catholics and Protestants from the time of the Reformation until 1803.
