Lutheran Church Lohmen

Short facts

Experts describe the Lohmen church as one of the most beautiful and largest village churches in Saxony.

A church was documented in Lohmen as early as 1292. In the beginning, the old castle chapel probably also served as the parish chapel.

In 1786 - 89, the new church was built of solid sandstone ashlars by the Königstein fortress and Pirna council mason, Johann Daniel Kayser, and the master carpenter Christian Gotthelf Reuther from Kreischa. As with the Dresden Frauenkirche, its ground plan is an octagon. In Lohmen, the sacristy adjoins it in the north and the tower in the south. The tower hall also forms the entrance. The church is considered the last baroque central building in the succession of George Bähr. The decoration in white with delicate gold ornamentation already shows characteristics of classicism.

On the north side is a pulpit altar and in front of it in the axis of the room is the baptismal font. Above the pulpit altar is the organ, which was built in 1789 by the organ and instrument maker Johann Christian Kayser. Its case is similar in design, albeit much simpler, to the two-manual cases of many Silbermann organs and, like the church itself, is a listed building.
