Stiftskirche Kaufungen was built in 1025 CE by Cunigunde of Luxembourg, an empress who was later canonized as a saint. Architects regard this church as an epitome of Romanesque and Ottonian Renaissance styles of architecture. The stone-walled basilica seems as if it hides several secrets of its 1000-year history within its aisles. The interiors were damaged several times and hence the nave and church hall bear elements of Gothic art and architecture. Spend time admiring the stained glass windows, high vaulted ceiling supported by pillars, and murals on the walls and columns. The basilica also houses a historic organ dating back to 1802. A popular Christmas market is organized here every December.
