Church of Our Lady on the banks of the Elbe River

Brief description

A jewel of unusual beauty and inestimable value is the late Gothic "Liebfrauenkirche" (14th-15th century) with its magnificent Baroque furnishings, which makes this church a national art monument.

Detailed description

Gothic ceiling decorations, cross ribs and mesh vaults characterise the interior of the small church. It owes its rich painting and elaborate Baroque design to the Hadamar School of Sculpture. The high altar and pulpit are works by the sculptor Martin Volck (c. 1750). In the tower of the Liebfrauenkirche, one of the oldest bells (1451) in Germany still in operation can be heard. The Liebfrauenkonzerte (Liebfrauen Concerts) take place every year at 4.30 p.m. on the 1st Sundays from June to September and present musical masterpieces from several centuries.
