the building:
With its core structure from the mid-13th century, it is the earliest surviving choirless hall church in the Baltic Sea region. In the first half of the 15th century, the elevated choir was built with archway (flying buttress) and tower. After severe war damage, it was rebuilt with apartments in the attic storey and offices in the tower. The hall is used for concerts.
