St. Jame's Lutheran Church (St. Jakob's in German) is a pilgrimage church built between 1311 and 1484, and consecrated in 1485 by the Bishop of Wurzburg.
It is possibly most famous for housing Wurzburg wood carver Tilman Riemenschneider's Holy Blood altarpiece which he completed between 1500 and 1505.
