  • The city is small so going to this church is one of few things to do other than walking around a tiny city. It is quite large and has a very interesting gift shop.  more »

  • The swing is really fun and worth the 5 euros. However, I'm not sold on how expensive it is to get into the building. The top is bouncing with people, music, a bar, and some cool tourist photo spots. If you have to kill time while inside the building, go down a floor or two and check out the views.

  • Cheap entry price. Beautiful place. I think the were tuning or checking the organs when we went in so got an impromptu concert. That was fantastic. Go in if you are about. You wont be sorry.
