The “Felsenkirche” church – legendary and unique

The town’s famous landmark is the prominent medieval church (built between 1482 and 1484) situated in a prominent location above Idar-Oberstein. Just the ascent is a worthwhile experience: The interior is accessed via
a tunnel that has been carved into the solid rock, which leads you over approx. 220 steps.
Please note that the “Felsenkirche” church is closed to visitors during wedding ceremonies. Services are held at 10:00 am every third Sunday of the month from May to October (subject to change).

- ATTENTION - Felsenkirche will be closed until the end of 2021!
