History and architecture

The former Marienkirche is a late Romanesque , three- bay hall church with a semicircular end of the choir . It was built in the second half of the 13th century. The roof turret was put on in 1822. The simple plastered building with arched windows and straight, closed side aisles corresponds to the regional characteristics of the hall churches. Inside the pillars of the Western are yokes three half-columns with cushion capitals purposed. Above that, dome ridge vaults rest between the belt and divider arches . Trapezoidal vaulted fields were drawn into the aisles . The eastern yokes, which were freed from the galleries in 1955, are accentuated like a transept due to the lack of semi-columns and the niche in the outer walls. The side apses are designed as semicircular niches in wall thickness. The interior was repainted in 1955.


The bell with a majusc inscription was cast in the 14th century. It has a bell foundry seal and is tuned to the tone f sharp 2 - 5.


The new organ with a new parapet was installed in 2007 by Dieter Noeske . The slider chest instrument has 15 stops on two manuals and pedal . The playing and register actions are mechanical.
