The interior of Holy Trinity Church in Regensburg, Bavaria.

Some information about the church from Regensburg Tourist Guide website:

The Church of the Holy Trinity, located on the Gesandtenstrasse, was built in the midst of the Thirty Years War. This was one of the first evangelical churches in Bavaria. Construction began on July 4th 1627, and was completed only 4 years later on December 5th, 1631. The original benches are still used today, dating back to 1630-31. The intricate wood carvings on the back of the choir chairs are a highlight especially worth seeing. The poor box, which dates back to 1632, originally stood in the middle isle but is now located in a showcase near the pulpit rise.

Other attractions include the small cemetery, running adjacent along side the church, which includes a row of baroque styled grave monuments as well as resting areas of former foreign parliament members. But above all, don't forget to climb up the tower where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the 'old city'!
