The Friedenskirche was built from 1908 to 1910 according to plans by Hermann Behaghel and watches over Heidelberg's most populous district, Handschuhsheim, with its 61-meter tower. The church building has stylistic elements of the late Gothic, Renaissance and Art Nouveau periods and, with its stair towers and tower-like extensions, is reminiscent of a castle complex. This impression is not entirely coincidental, because the Tiefburg is the ruins of a medieval moated castle in the immediate vicinity – probably the most impressive sight in Handschuhsheim.
