Photo: Decorative St Martins Church Facade Landshut Bavaria Germany

This decorative mural is found on the facade above the entrance to Martinskirche or St Martin's Church as it is known in English.

Decorative is one way to describe the St Martin's Church facade that visitors and worshippers enter under in order to visit this historic church in the City of Landshut, in the region of Bavaria, Germany. This church is hundreds of years old, but intricate details such as this mural have been preserved and survive to show how much work went in to the building of this church when it first began in 1389 in Landshut. This was not the first church to stand on this spot, but this version of the building took 110 years to finish, so it is well looked after now.

This mural contains Jesus hanging on the cross, with his worshippers at his feet praying for salvation. A mural like this would not be uncommon in a church even today, but would have been a necessary addition to a medieval church. ... continue below the picture...

... As can be seen from these details as well, the church was built in the Gothic style, as it contains many arches, which was a feature of that architectural design.

What is amazing to many visitors of this historic and popular church, is the fact that the colours and details used on the outside of the building on the facade are so vibrant and well preserved. These would not have been the original colours as the outside is so exposed to the elements that it would fade and become damaged over time, but the integrity of the original building has been kept, so visitors to this historic landmark can see what people hundreds of years ago would have seen as well.
