Lutheran Mountain Church Berggießhübel

Short facts

Evangelical Lutheran Mountain Church with local cemetery in Berggießhübel

The tower of the Berggießhübler church rises a proud 36 metres into the sky. Equally imposing is the middle house, whose ridge is 15 metres high. An artfully designed wooden beams adorn the ceiling of the interior, which runs at a lofty 10 metres.

Entering the nave reveals a spacious layout: a magnificent main aisle winds through the centre, accompanied by elegant side aisles. The ship stretches 15 metres long and 9 metres wide, a generous layout. Two sublime galleries with a height of 2.85 metres await us here. These filigree constructions are supported by cast-iron beams, and ascent to them is through an inviting staircase at the nave entrance.

The stage for the altar is raised by three raised steps, an area 8 metres long and 6 metres wide. A glance to the left reveals the intimate baptistery, which is of historical significance, as is the former prayer room of the Friedrichsthal estate above. To the right of the altar hides the sacristy, crowned by another prayer room, this time for the parish. These four rooms open to the outside via separate entrances.

The present character of the interior was largely shaped by a comprehensive renovation in 1969. Modern chandeliers and a subtle colour scheme have replaced the former chandeliers and the painted interior ceiling. In the process, the sandstone altar structure was also removed and replaced by an impressive black marble cross, partly decorated with shimmering gold leaf.
