Inside the church is a tower accessible for 1.5€. The view from the top is just wonderful. One can appreciate a captivating panorama of Tübingen. I would totally recommend.

This late gothic church from 1470 was one of the first churches to convert to Martin Luther's protestant churches. It houses a large amount of royal tonbs and has some stunning wood carvings on the benches. On top it, has the Schäufelein Altar, an altar from 1520 that was painted by an assistant of Hans Schäufelein who was a student of Albrecht Dürer, one of Germany's most famous painters.

The Church of St Eustace was built between 1532-1632. St Eustace"s is considered a masterpiece of late Gothic architecture. The church’s reputation was strong enough of the time for it to be chosen as the location for a young Louis XIV to receive communion. Mozart also chose the sanctuary as the location for his mother’s funeral. Among those baptised here as children were Richelieu, Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson, future Madame de Pompadour and Molière, who was also married here in the 17th century. The last rites for Anne of Austria, Turenne and Mirabeau were pronounced within its walls. Marie de Gournay is buried there.

The origins of Saint Eustache date back to 13th century. The church became a parish church in 1223, thanks to a man named Jean Alais who achieved this by taxing the baskets of fish sold nearby, as granted by King Philip Augustus. To thank such divine generosity, Alais constructed a chapel dedicated to Sainte-Agnès, a Roman martyr.
