Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia Sights

St. Wenceslas

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 11/07/2013

Fodor's Review

The parish church of St. Wenceslas dominates the southern end of the Markt. A church has stood on this spot since 1218, but the current incarnation dates from 1426, with interior renovations in 1726. The church is most famous for its huge Hildebrandt Organ, which was tested and tuned by J. S. Bach in 1746. Fans of Lucas Cranach the Elder get their due with two of his paintings, Suffer the Little Children Come Unto Me and the Adoration of the Three Magi. The 73-meter-tall tower belongs to the city, not the church, and was used as a watchtower for the city guards, who lived there until 1994.
