Butzbach St. Mark's Church: Hessian Cultural Monument

Originally, the Markuskirche in Butzbach in the Wetterau district of Hesse was built as a basilica at the beginning of the 13th century. In the period between 1430 and 1520, it was then remodelled into a three-nave Gothic hall church, which is still preserved today. Particularly worth seeing are a Romanesque baptismal font from the first half of the 13th century and the tomb of Landgrave Philipp III of Hesse-Butzbach (1620 – 1622). The latter has a square floor plan and is decorated with much stucco work and biblical motifs and verses. Also noteworthy are the two organs, which come from two stylistically different eras, as well as the organ prospect by Georg Wagner from 1614.
