Overview

Considered a jewel of German architecture, this romantic, half-timbered baroque style church with its 13th Century spire popularly referred to as the 'Eppendorfer wedding church' was a structure that survived the onslaught on World War II. The first official records date from 1267, after which the church exteriors have been renovated several times. A brick wall now surrounds the circular steeple, and in 1903, a wooden vaulted ceiling was added to the church´s interior. There are some breathtaking paintings in the galleries, and the wooden crucifix at the altar was created in the early 16th century. Couples who do not belong to the Eppendorf parish are asked to donate a nominal sum if they wish to get married here.
