Emmendingen Church of St. Boniface

Emmendingen Church of St. Boniface


Neo-Gothic sacred building with history

The impressive Catholic church of St. Boniface was built in the neo-Gothic style under the direction of the archbishop’s building director Max Meckel – in two construction phases. First, the choir and transept were built from 1894 to 1895, and then the nave and tower of the church from 1911 to 1913. Worth seeing in the church is the winged altar in the chapel next to the main portal from 1473, which is attributed to the master Friedrich Herlin from Nördlingen. Curious: the predecessor building, a small church by the Karlsruhe master builder Heinrich Hübsch from 1862/63, was transported stone by stone to Denzlingen in 1912 with an ox cart and rebuilt there.
