St. Martin's Church

The Church of St. Martin and Castulus represents one of the greatest masterpieces of Gothic architecture in Germany. Its 130.60-metre high bell tower is the highest brick tower in the world and the third-highest medieval tower after those of Strasbourg Cathedral and St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. In 1204, the year Landshut was founded by Duke Ludwig I of Bavaria, a church was already built on this site. Today's church is a reconstruction from the end of the 14th century, consecrated in 1500.

New Parish Church

Regensburg's new parish church was built between 1519 and 1540 on the remains of a former synagogue in Regensburg's Jewish quarter. The expulsion of the Jews from Regensburg in 1519 made it possible to erect the new church, which was intended to be the centre of a Marian pilgrimage. In 1542, however, Regensburg converted to the Protestant-Lutheran denomination and the city council made the church the first Protestant parish church in the city.
