——————————

St George's Church is the home church of Martin Luther and is a central repository for urban and territorial history of the Reformation in the Mansfeld region

The beginnings of the church date to the 12-13th century. It is a single-nave late Gothic hall church, laid crosswise at the origin. The tower base is from Romanesque times. The present appearance of the church dates back to the years 1497-1518.

- The many artistic representations of St. George and the allegorical reference to Martin Luther play a prominent role in local historical perspective.
