Stiftskirche from North

The Stiftskirche is a church located in Tübingen, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is a late gothic structure built by Peter von Koblenz in 1470. The stained glass windows were designed by Peter Hemmel of Andlau who also designed windows in Ulm, Augsburg, Nürnberg, München and Straßburg. It is the central landmark and, along with the rest of the city, the Stiftskirche was one of the first to convert to Martin Luther's protestant church. It maintains (and carefully defends) several "Roman Catholic" features, such as patron saints.
