Schwäbisch Gmünd Johanniskirche


Popular photo motif in the city center

St. John’s Church in Schwäbisch Gmünd is a late Romanesque pillar basilica built in the 13th century and dedicated to St. John the Baptist. The Catholic city church is located directly between Johannisplatz and Marktplatz and is a popular photo motif. This is not least due to the leaning tower, which has tilted by about one meter due to the boggy ground. In the meantime, St. John’s Church in Schwäbisch Gmünd with its well-known silhouette has even become the city’s landmark and can be found in some logos, for example for the city’s anniversary in 2012. The church’s tower is accessible and offers a unique view from the tower room.
