The Unionskirche is the active Protestant parish church of Idstein, a town in the Rheingau-Taunus district in the German state of Hesse. Idstein was a residence of the counts of Nassau. The church building in the center of the historic Altstadt dates back to the 14th century when it was built as a collegiate church. It became Lutheran during the Reformation. Its interior was adapted in the 17th century to become a Lutheran Predigt- und Hofkirche. The most prominent decoration in the church is the series of 38 paintings by the Flemish painter Michael Angelo Immenraedt, an exponent of Flemish Baroque painting, and others. They follow a program of biblical scenes.

The approximately 42-metre-high Hexenturm, the landmark of the town of Idstein, is the keep of Idstein Castle, which has been structurally modified several times and designed as a butter barrel tower. Due to its exposed location and its height, it shapes the Idstein cityscape. It bears the international protection mark for the marking of cultural property under the Hague Convention.
