Church of St Martin Mar 04, 2017
The catholic parish church of St. Martin is mostly a baroque building, the romanesque tower and the gothic choir derive from the medieval precedessor.

The baroque nave contains a surprise: The vaulted ceiling is covered with colourful modern frescoes by Emil Wachter, painted in 1987: Wachter is a renowned artist and has done many church interiors in Baden-Württemberg. He translated the baroque principles of ceiling frescoes into modern style. He tells biblical stories with contemporary elements, like the Prodigal Son leaving home on a motorbike.

The church is usually open in the daytime and can be entered from the southern side door.
