The main church of the Lower Town was built in the 13th / 14th centuries by the Teutonic Order as the first large Gothic church in central Germany. Stylistic elements of French cathedrals refer to their character as the bishop's church of Kristans von Samland, their client. Here J.S Bach worked 1707/1708 as an organist. The new organ building from 1959 was based on Bach's organ design. Church and organ tours with sound examples are provided by Tourist-Information, tel. 03601 40477-0.
