Marburg Lutheran City Church

Marburg Lutheran City Church


Landmark of the university town

As the oldest parish church in Marburg, the Lutheran Town Church is one of the landmarks of the university town. A Romanesque church stood on the same site, which was rebuilt in the 13th and 14th centuries into the Gothic hall church in its present form. After the Elisabeth Church, the Lutheran City Church is the second largest sacred building in the city. Something special is the leaning tower. This was added in the 15th century and has gradually bent over the centuries due to exposure to the sun and weather. Inside is the tomb of Landgravine Hedwig von Württemberg and her husband. The church is often used for concerts because of its good acoustics.
