Fodor's Review

Standing high over the town on the Apollinarisberg Hill, the roots of this neogothic church run deep. The site first hosted an ancient Roman temple that was supplanted in medieval times by a 9th-century Frankish chapel dedicated to Saint Martin. In 1110 the Benedictines built an abbey on the site, which became the resting place for the relics of St. Apollinaris of Ravenna sometime in the 14th century. The 14th-century crypt was incorporated into the present neogothic church, built in 1839–42. The grounds of this richly frescoed church offer wonderful views of the Middle Rhine Valley.
