In honour of Saint Elizabeth

Among other things, the building impresses with its building material: light shell limestone gives the Elisabethkirche, consecrated in 1888 in honour of Saint Elizabeth, a very unusual appearance. The city's only Catholic church follows the architectural style of the Elisabethkirche in Marburg.

When you enter the church, the first thing you notice is the warm and calm colour scheme. The gold ochre of the chancel, as a symbol of the divine, is repeated brighter in the nave. The sacrament chapel - the holiest place - is decorated with medieval ox-red, as is the niche in which the carved figure of Elizabeth has stood since 1931. The modern windows in the choir room focus on the resurrection. In front of the church stands a figure of Elizabeth, depicting her descending from the Wartburg Castle to the poor. Take your own impressions from a church that time and again touches many visitors in a very special way.
