The protestant church is a building in purest neogothic style, erected in 1876-1878. The interior must have recently been renovated. The timberwork of the open roof truss, the galleries, benches, and the repainted ornaments on the walls all match.

Unfortunately the altar, pulpit, baptismal font and organ have been substituted by modern pieces in the second half of the 20th century. These disturb the overall picture. Shame the neogothic furniture is lost. I could accept the new, slender baptismal font and maybe also the altar, but the pulpit is just plain ugly and the mouldy green modern organ is the worst punch in the eye...

Directions: Access from Kirchstraße through the little park. The church is open in the daytime.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
