The interior of the church surprises with its austere, raised central nave. There are four columns on the outer choir wall, which are said to be made of limestone from the Roman Eifel water pipeline. When the church was given a modern extension in the 1960s and the Romanesque church was renovated, Romanesque frescoes were found in the apses of the side aisles. Also worthy of note are the baptismal font (13th century), a Gothic sacrament house in the choir and a 15th century Pieta as well as Baroque sculptures from the 18th century: a crucifixion group in the choir, the pulpit, St. Sebastian's altar and the organ prospect from 1787.
The belfry contains six new bronze bells and a steel bell, which is the largest in the Archdiocese of Paderborn. All the bells together have a total weight of around 18 tons.
In recent years, the parish church of St. Clemens has been thoroughly renovated. The new altarpiece by artist Thomas Jessen has become a much-discussed and sensational attraction.
The church is open all day. It is located right in the city center.
