There are two others churched dedicated to St. Peter in Strasbourg – a Lutheran-Catholic and a Romanesque. This is the Protestant one, which is also the reason it’s called “Young St. Peter’s”. Built on the site of a 7th century Columban Church (the remains of which are stills seen), the church is quite important to Strasbourg, even if it’s not quite as grandiose as the Cathedral. Features to note include the centuries old arched galleries, the 14th century frescoes, the unique choir screen, a famous choir organ and also the rib vault, the memorial slabs, the baptismal font and the painting on the altar. The cloisters too are lovely. Low key but tranquil, this place is usually an unexpected surprise to all those who visit. Some tourists have said that it carries the feeling of a great age, but the lightness of a young spirit.

I'm still stunned. Beautiful, ancient and eerie. As a great fan of romanesque and gothic architecture and sculpture I have to say this one is really magnificent! The most beautiful place I ever saw. There's no entrance fee, but you should leave a few euros in the box to help a bit the restoration. This church worth more than a lot of other ones what asking for money to get in.
Go there. It is really great
One of the most beautiful churches I’ve visited in Europe.
A much quieter church (less popular for tourists) but stunning nonetheless. There is a guide in various languages you can take with you during your visit, which makes it much more meaningful and beneficial than flocking into a famous cathedral not knowing any history.
I really loved the walls inside this church the way they were old and weathered. It just has so much character
