Neighborhood: St.Georg
Overview

The chapel of St.Georg´s hospital used to be located on the same spot as the Dreieinigkeitskirche today. It was appointed as a parish church in 1627. From 1743-47 a new church with a 65 metre steeple was erected here. Only the steeple survived the damage caused by World War II, and from 1954-57 the church we see today was built according to another new design. Inside the church there is a nice trinity mosaic by Karl Knappe, as well a a crucifixion scene in bronze. In the churchyard you will find a statue of St. George fighting the dragon. It was created by Garhard Marcks in 1958. Opens on Saturdays at 2p.
