St. Marien Kirche

So this church was pretty amazing. It was dates from 1230, and the organ was competed 4 years before JS Bach was born. This organ was one manual, no pedal, and total mean tone, and it was WONDERFUL.

Playing this beautiful instrument.
Behind the alter. Every Lutheran pastor since the time of the reformation was listed out. It gave me chills. Deep history.
Look at these pipes... not even smooth... such an old organ!

My guyLuther on the pulpit!

A lovely little flower growing in the cracks of the stone outside the building.

The building.

The baptismal font that dates from the 12th century. Unbelievable.

The church.
