Two picture Sunday: Jesuite church

churchwindowA view through a window of Jesuite church out on the sunlit houses next to it. Jesuite church is the biggest Catholic church in town (the biggest one, Heiliggeist, is Protestant. The oldest one, St. Peter, has been transferred to the university). The Jesuites’ majestic facade looks over many uni buildings (and usually caught my eye during many a linguistics course), the tower almost seems to be part of uni square. The interior has been renovated recently, with a beautiful new organ prospect made of shiny aluminium installed. Definitely worth a visit, even if you’re not Catholic.
