Hour of natural light 2022

Sunday, 3rd July til Sunday,  10th July 2022 - Closed on Monday 4th July 2022

Clock hour of natural lightThe church renovation of 2011 brought a new electrical lighting concept. Since then, the altar of the Virgin Mary by Tilman Riemenschneider shines in a special light.

But there are also voices that say that the altar is more expressive in natural light. A comparison is possible again this year:

During the hour of natural light the electrical light gets switched off in the time from 17 to 18 o'clock!

The colour of the wood, the spatial impression (the new - different shading) and the detailed workings, change in a very interesting way.
Who enters the church shortly before 17 o'clock, sees both light variants!
Let yourself be surprised!

Do not confuse the hour of natural light with the miracle of light. You can admire the miracle of light from 15th - 31st August 2022.

Visit the Herrgottskirche also in "real" - 
a place, where heaven and earth meet each other.

A good place to meet
the art and
other humans.

Let yourself be impressed by the probably most significant altar from Tilman Riemenschneider.
