Be ready to pay the MANDATORY donations, or else... On the doors of the church it says to pay a "donation" ("Spende" in German) of 2 Euros, so I entered thinking I'd have the choice of whether or not to donate. The church inside is decorated with lots of gold and bling in great condition. As I'm not a believer of this faith nor could I see any charitable cause that I would want to contribute to, I simply wanted to leave the church after respectfully looking around. However, upon leaving the lady at the entrance demanded that I pay 2 Euros. When I pointed out that the sign outside said " donations" and not "entry fee", she got very rude with me, telling me that I was taking advantage of the church and that it was my duty to pay.. When I pointed out that a "donation" is voluntary and if the church wanted money from every visitor it should just write "entrance fee" on its doors to not mislead people, she got insanely offensive and told me to get the hell out and learn reading properly! Nevet been treated like that before, especially at a church! It's not about the 2 Euros, I'll pay that happily or decide not to enter if I know that's price. But this kind of sly behaviour of calling it donation but then expecting payment, coupled with the unchurchlike rudeness unfortunately ruined the trip there.
Great building with lot's of history, just bring a few euros as they expect a donation to enter.
Smalll, historic church!
A charming church in the forest above Wiesbaden. You may enjoy a relaxing walk in nature and a fantastic landscape!
