Fritz Högers’ impressive brick building, constructed between 1930-33, needs to be viewed from a distance. With its steep walls and tall slender tower, the building is intimidating when one is too near. This master and lover of dark-red brick has used gilded stone and joints as decorative features to lessen the effect of the monumental structure of the facades. The front entrance is also vast, yet here the massive stones of the staircase and the semi-circular side aisles are stacked and piled up in various playful ways. They frame the path to the pointed archway and shimmering gold of the entrance. The interior of the church is a light, almost delicate space whose height makes one feel dizzy. It is enclosed by 13 steep pointed arches made of ferro-concrete. Unfortunately, the rich interior furnishings were badly damaged in the Second World War and have not been restored. The church is open for a few hours every weekday except Monday between April and November. It is also open for the two annual art exhibitions and the organ can be heard when there is a weekly market.
