Schorndorf city church


Hall church from the 15th century

At the end of the 15th century, the Schorndorf town church was built as a three-nave hall church with two choirs and a tower. The absolute centerpiece of the sacred building is the Lady Chapel, in the vault of which there is an art-historically valuable Root of Jesse depiction. This is attributed to the master builder Anton Pilgram, who was artistically active in St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, among other places. Over the centuries, the Schorndorf town church was frequently renovated and rebuilt, for example after the devastating town fire of 1634. Also worth seeing in the church are the Renaissance-style pulpit, the epitaphs in the chancel, and the former altar barriers in early rococo style, which date from 1739.
