Fodor's Review

St. Martin's Church, with the tallest brick church tower (428 feet) in the world, soars above the other buildings. The church, which was elevated to the rank of basilica minor in 2002, contains some magnificent late-Gothic stone and wood carvings, notably a 1516–20 Madonna by the artist Hans Leinberger. It's surely the only church in the world to contain an image of Hitler, albeit in a devilish pose. The Führer, Goering, and Goebbels are portrayed as executioners in a 1946 stained-glass window showing the martyrdom of St. Kastulus (who was buried alive in the year 287). In the nave of the church is a clear and helpful description of its history and treasures in English. From May to November, every first Sunday of the month a tour is conducted between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm, which will take you to the Schatzkammer, the church's treasure chamber.
