The Romanesque fieldstone church in Eichholz embodies a distinctive combination of the old and the new. The 12th century church has received a new roof in recent years, with parts of the historic roof construction having been integrated. The new altar was made from the church’s original roof beams, which are over 800 years old. The main features of the church (altar, lectern, baptismal font, pulpit) created by sculptor Till Hausmann combine historic oak with more recent types of wood, thereby reflecting the unity between the old and the new throughout the building as a whole: the apsis, i.e. the end of the choir, was newly built with modern floor-to-ceiling windows by the well-known artist Johannes Schreiter. who also created the designs for the six side windows. By contrast, the Romanesque nave, the mighty broad tower and the medieval baptismal font remain in their original form.
As part of the glass art project Lichtungen organised by the Evangelical Regional Church of Anhalt, the church in Eichholz is one of the sights along the Elbe Cycle Path where tourists can stop off.
