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 can be reached via
a tunnel cut into the rock, which guides you over roughly 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).

- WARNING - due to rock-securing work it is currently impossible to access Felsenkirche.
