Of Schinkel Church and Organs

Lübben is the home of the famous German songwriter Paul Gerhardt. The late-Gothic hall church named after him houses a particularly rare late-Romantic organ with 29 stops. Six leaded glass windows feature portraits and ecclesiastical song verses by Paul Gerhardt.

The Schinkel Church in Straupitz has a famous creator. As the name suggests, the church was designed by the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Particularly characteristic of the classicist architectural style are the two gleaming white church towers and the bright, simple and at the same time graceful church interior.
