Description

The town church was built in the era of the Staufer rule. Only the tower has been preserved from this time, all other parts of the building fell victim to the bomb attack in 1944. The church was rebuilt in 1950/51. The stained glass windows in the choir are particularly worth seeing.

In the Middle Ages, the town church had a close relationship with the Cistercian monastery in Eußerthal. The town and the monastery maintained the church together and the monks said mass here.

The town church is part of the historical tour of Annweiler am Trifels.

This building is a testimony to the medieval building culture in the Palatinate and part of the European model project "Sternenweg - Chemin des Étoiles". In the Middle Ages, pilgrims of St. James travelled on many different paths, but oriented themselves on the old bishoprics such as Speyer or Strasbourg, on architectural witnesses such as churches, monasteries or castles, and on the stars. Today, many of these stone witnesses are marked with a scallop shell. They invite you to travel in the footsteps of the St. James pilgrims, to discover gems of cultural heritage and to find peace and contemplation off the beaten track. Pilgrimage stands for the motifs of democracy, peace, tolerance and freedom and aims to promote international understanding across borders. Further information: www.sternenweg.net
