The Saint Catherine's church can catch the eye from afar because it's throning majestically above the cit centre of Oppenheim. It was built between the 13th and the 15th century and is a worth seeing example for the gothic architecture. You can discover the specialties of the church individually or in the frame of a guided tour. The latter also brings a spectacular tower outlook over the surrounding vineyards and Landskron castle.
Take a look at the popular glass windows on the south facade, also called rose of Oppenheim. The late medieval glass panes mostly remained original. On the north of the St. Catherine's church is the Michael's chapel, where the bones of approximately 20.000 citizens from Oppenheim from the middle ages and the early modern times are piled up. It is considered as the biggest and best maintained ossuary in Germany.
For many centuries the church music in the St. Catherine's church played a huge role. Popular organists like Max Reger and Albert Schweitzer once played on an important Walcker organ. Today the church owns an escellent Woehl organ that you can listen to on several concerts.
