St. Peter and Paul is a Gothic church in the quarter of Detwang in Rothenburg. Even in though Gothic it still is a charming small church with an amazing carved altar piece.The crucifixion reredos by Tilman Riemenschneider is the most important piece of artwork in the church.It is located two kilometers outside Rothenburg, in the small former Reichsdorf Detwang in the Tauber Valley. You can do a twenty-minute countryside hike from Rothenburger castle garden. The church has a more than 1000-year history to it. It has a treasured relic cross from about 1050 AD. The soffits of windows are beautifully painted with leaves, flowers and enigmatic Harlequins in fresco technique.
The little church gets a lot of character from Gothic arcades, under which are side altars, giving it vibe of a place of refuge.
The Detwanger church probably could be one of the few known wedding churches in Germany.
