Lutheran Parish Church

Short facts

Church with harmoniously combined stylistic elements from different eras

Struppen was the ancestral seat of a knightly dynasty mentioned in a document in 1275. The Romanesque church was built around this time. The Struppen church is a fine example of the harmonious integration of elements from different style periods in one building. The cross-ribbed vault of the choir is Gothic, the southern structure in front of the main portal with its volute gable shows Renaissance forms, other components come from the Baroque or the 19th century.

Of the church's furnishings, the organ is particularly worth mentioning; it is located opposite the altar, which is kept rather simple, in the second gallery. The unique instrument with 13 stops was built in 1668 - presumably by the Königstein "organ maker" Christian Frietzsche (1638-1680) and is thus the oldest organ in Saxon Switzerland.
