Directly opposite the St. Nikolaikirche is the museum of the Lutheran community. The building dates back to the Middle Ages and houses changing exhibitions about the church, and on local and regional history.

The museum is home to a real treasure. The church library contains over 2,600 books, the oldest of which dates back to 1447. It’s the perfect place for anyone wanting to take a closer look at the period of the Reformation and Enlightenment. Most of the collection dates from these eras and once belonged to the working library of the pastor Georg Wilhelm Wegner (1692-1765).

If you are planning a visit to the library and the archives, please phone in advance for an appointment. There are guided tours of the house and the exhibitions every Friday.

Once a month, events are held in the attic of the museum, including concerts, readings and lectures.
