St. James's Church - Review
Dominating the skyline of Rothenburg, St. Jacob's Church is the most important church in Rothenburg. The narrow lancet windows and tall pinnacles of the Church appear as if they are reaching towards the heaven. Valuable art treasures along with an array of art works were donated by the people of the town after the building’s completion in 1485. Praying at this beautiful church is a different experience in its own, amongst such rich history to it.

St. James's Church, Rothenburg Reviews
The architecture is outstanding. I did not go inside as I was busy doing an overview tour of Rothenburg. The detail in the exterior was outstanding. I imagine the interior stained glass windows were dramatic.
It is nice from the outside. They charge a fee to enter and inside is just one more regular church. Not worth visiting at all being so many better ones in Europe and with free admision.
Are you serious? You charge for entering? After having been to more than a dozen famous churches and cathedrals in the US and Europe, this is the second one does so, after Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp! No mean to underestimate the effort people put in, I just do not think it's a right way.
This church charges in order to allow you inside. God is one thing and business is something else. Any church that charges an entrance is not a church but a business. God is not a business.
Yes, absolutely download the free Rick Steve's walking tour of this historic town! It doesn't take too long and will give you perspective on the town before turning you loose to shop your own volition. It'll walk you through the church too, just be sure to use headphones so you don't disturb others.
