Kamenz: St Marien Kirche

The main church in Kamenz is St. Marien Kirche shown on the far right of the above drawing; this church goes back to 1225. The first Lutheran service here was in 1527.

The church itself contains many old artifacts of earlier days. Below you will see interesting choir stalls from 1560, pulpit from 1564, pews from the 16th century, a baptismal font from the 14th century, and altarpieces from the 15th century. This is the church where Remus family members had baptisms, marriages, and funerals for over 600 years. Johan Gottlieb Lessing was pastor at this church.
