St. Vitus parish church

 

The oldest church in the Vogtland is more than 1000 years old and is representative of four styles of architecture.

St. Vitus Church is more than 1000 years old and is thereby one of the oldest churches in Thuringia. It is situated in Veitsberg, a district of Wünschendorf. The church dates back to the construction of a castle chapel in 974. Today, visitors to St. Vitus are amazed by the late Gothic Altar of Our Lady, which originates from 1490, as well as the stained glass windows from the 12th century. Also worth mentioning is a medieval stone relief that depicts the church’s patron saint. A tower from the ruins of the castle, which was once joined with the church, has served as a sacristy since 1360.

St. Vitus Church can boast many architectural styles from the different epochs due to numerous alterations to the building that lasted until the 17th century.
