Bürgersaalkirche is a beautiful church on Neuhauser Strasse.

I was originally made to be a citizen’s hall when it was completed in 1710, but ever since 1778, when the altar was consecrated, it’s been used as a church.

There are two levels to the church. Today we’ll explore the crypt level.

As you can see, the crypt level of the church is simple and it feels small, due to the low ceilings.  But you can also see that there is some amazing artwork as well.

Around the outside walls of the crypt level are statues depicting the stations of the cross.  They are gorgeous and full of amazing detail.

And lastly, it wouldn’t be Catholic church if there wasn’t something dedicated to Mary.

There is also what seems to be a museum, highlighting some of the priests and “tools” used in the past.  Here are two things I found the most interesting.

Next up – we go upstairs.  Trust me, it’s worth it.
