Collegiate Church (Stiftskirche) is the main Protestant church in Wurttemberg. It is located in the city center and can be easily recognized by two dissimilar towers, which give the church an interesting look. An octagonal, massive tower and a rectangular tower with a gabled roof do not fit together. However, the main building of the church is hard to confuse with something else. History of the Collegiate Church begins at the turn of the X-XI centuries. Subsequently, it had been rebuilt many times. During World War II it was almost destroyed to its foundation. The church was only rebuilt in the 50s, but the original form wasn't preserved.
Nevertheless, the church preserved the ancient monument - the crypt of Ulrich I, Count of Württemberg and his wife, Agnes von Liegnitz (both died in 1265). At the feet of the graph there are two stone lions, which symbolize heroism, and at the feet of his wife - two dogs, meaning fidelity.
The gallery, where 11 stone statues of the Counts of Württemberg are installed on the north side of the choir, also attracts attention. It was built by the sculptor Simon Shlёr in 1576 at the request of Duke Ludwig in memory of his ancestors.
