Lorch old town


Half-timbered idyll on the Rhine

On a tour of the picturesque old town of Lorch, the first thing that catches the eye are the historic half-timbered houses and the parish church of St. Martin on the small market square. The church was built at the end of the 13th century and is now considered the town’s landmark. Inside this little jewel are impressive sights that can also be visited on a guided tour of the town. Above all, the organ with its unique Riesling register stash, the elaborately designed high altar with numerous wood carvings, and the Romanesque triumphal cross are a must for all fans of sacred art. Near the parish church of St. Martin are the small town museum as well as the Hilchenhaus with its special Renaissance gable.
