Just down from the arch is Ludwigskirche.  The church serves as the university chapel and a Roman Catholic church as well.  I learned that it also is the second largest art fresco in the world.  Pretty impressive actually.

It’s a large church.  And there wasn’t a whole lot of light when I was there.  The picture above is a bit deceiving.  As I went around the sides of the church, it was pretty dark and I don’t have many good pictures of the beautiful art.  Here’s one that I thought came out ok, but still worth posting.

The altar is beautiful, in it’s only way – a simple altar with beauty surrounding it.

And lastly, I really liked the baptismal font.  There’s a ton of theology with the imagery.  There is the font in the center of what could almost be described as a tomb and an image of a dove over the font.  The imagery is powerful and expresses the theology of baptism so well – baptism is a sort of dying to self to be made new – all guided by the Holy Spirit.  Well done Ludwigskirche.
