If you are the kind of person who loves terms like Renaissance or Baroque, you will be thrilled by your visit to the Church of St. Andreas, located in the heart of the old town. Completed in 1629, the church is considered one of the most important late Renaissance and early Baroque sacred edifices in Germany. The former Jesuit monastic church was elevated to the status of a parish church after the dissolution of the Order in 1842. The mausoleum is the final resting place for the Elector Johann Wilhelm von der Pfalz, better known as Jan Wellem, born in Düsseldorf in 1658, as well as several member of his aristocratic family. The St Andreas treasury chamber is also well worth a visit. It displays precious art treasures from the 17th to the 20th centuries, including Baroque chasubles and a sumptuous monstrance. Music lovers will want to attend a concert in the “Sunday Organ in St Andreas” series (for a fee).
