Listen to the same organ Mozart used in 1778 at Eglise Saint-Thomas, a late-Gothic Protestant church. This church is internationally renowned for its historic and musically significant organs: the 1741 Silbermann organ played by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1778, and a 1905 organ built by Fritz Haerpfer. The church's impressive collection includes a late-Gothic representation of Saint Michael, the second-largest fresco of its kind in France. Many of the medieval leaded windows are still intact, including the rose stained glass toward the front of the building. This Protestant church is also known for the famous, richly decorated sarcophagus of Bishop Adelochus (1130), and the huge, late-Baroque mausoleum of Marshall Maurice de Saxe (1777), created by Jean-Baptiste Pigalle. Other remarkable monuments include the Renaissance tombstone of Nikolaus Roeder von Tiersberg (1510), which is notable for its realistic depiction of his decaying corpse.

A nice church that is lesser visited then the Cathedral. However, less commercial and therefore preferred by us. Certainly worth a visit.

So welcoming! The service was in three languages - French, German and English (the English might have been for my benefit!). Lovely sermon (in French) about Mark's account of the Greatest Commandment. All ages represented in a good congregation of about 60. A young woman played the flute beautifully and the acoustics made the sound even better.
Would be nice to ask if they hold any concerts in the days of your visit.
