St Michael's Church in Bernkastel Germany.The church is in the Bernkastel part of town and is the only remaining building in the Moselle region that is still consistently preserved in the style of the 14th Century. It contains three naves and an abundance of rich furnishings that is unmatched anywhere else in these parts nowadays. The Baroque facade, which was restored in 1968, presents a stark contrast to the solid mass of St. Michael's tower, which dates back more than 600 years. The interior of the church creates the impression of a hall-like space. The sacristy was constructed in 1664 and the central feature in the chancel is the Calvary scene from 1496.
