Cathedral of St. Lawrence - the Highest Point in Ebern

The late Gothic Church of St. Lawrence in Ebern was built in the late XV century. There was a fire in Ebern half a century before that, which destroyed almost the entire city. The old Romanesque basilica also burned: only the high Gothic tower remained. The new church was opened in 1491 in the newly rebuilt city. And the old tower adorned the building. Subsequently, when other towers were added to the city, it became known as the König, or King. The tower reaches a height of 43m. The temple stands on a hill with a height of 270m. To this day it is the highest point of the old town. The observation deck of König offers a magnificent view not only of the city but also of its surroundings: it’s good Ebern is quite small.

In January 2004, there was trouble in the temple. Fire spread quickly because of the fallen chandelier inside the building. The fire was extinguished, but the damage to the Cathedral was considerable. Restoring the interiors of the temple took several years. Now the Catholic Church is again open to the faithful and tourists. You must raise your head before going into it. You can see the picture of St Laurence - patron saint of the town of Ebern -before the main entrance.
