    Wonderfully unconventional church building with old Baroque furnishings of the Franciscan monastery in Vechta ..
    Is considered the largest pillarless hall church in Germany.
    From Wikipedia:
    "The cubic structure of the sacred structure with an inner width of 21.50 meters and a rooftop roof on all sides was originally connected to the eastern choir side with a bell tower, which collapsed soon after its establishment and was replaced by several, also quickly becoming unstable wooden towers until 1960, the current, in the manner of a Campanile next to the church freestanding massive, 54 -meter-high tower was completed. "

    The patronage already indicates the Abbey of Corvey, where the relics of St. Vitus came in 836. Since then, St. Vitus has been the patron saint of the Löningen Church. According to tradition, a separate church building was erected on the ground described around this time; the first church building in Löningen, however, is only proven in the 13th century.
