A masterpiece of Gothic-style architecture, the St. Jacobi church (built 1361-1459) with its 72m high tower may claim to be Göttingen’s most significant edifice. The interior, which in 1998/99 was restored in line with Renaissance models and adorned with five new motive windows, houses a precious double wing altar crafted by an unknown master in 1402.
