Long Description:

Deutsch

1828 ließ Herzog Leopold die Feldsteinkapelle abreißen und ließ von seinem Baumeister Carlo Ignazio Pozzi diese neue Kirche im neuromanischem Stil errichten. Die Kirche wurde 1829 fertiggestellt und war als Ergänzung zu dem nahe gelegenen klassizistischen Schloss gedacht. Aus der alten Kapelle stammt das umgekehrte Kapitell, auf dem die Kanzelsäule aus rotem Granit (8. bis 9. Jahrhundert) ruht.

Die beiden Glocken, die um das Jahr 1050 gegossen wurden. Sie sollen zu den ältesten in Deutschland gehören. Die Umschrift auf der kleineren besagt, dass sie der Jungfrau Maria gewidmet ist.
