The single-nave cobblestone church in Buckau was built in around 1200 and is one of the bigger churches in the area around Ziesar. The church in the Romanesque style was built with a square choir and and apse and can now seat up to 250 people. There are several possible explanations as to why this relatively large church was built in Buckau. One possibility is that there used to be a small castle on the northern edge of Bucknau and that the wife of the lord founded a church in the nearby village. In addition to this, in earlier documents Buckau is mentioned as an “Urb”, meaning a town and “civitas” or political township, a citizenry. It is assumed that Buckau was planned to be bigger than it eventually became. A connection with the bishop’s residence Ziesar Castle, taken over in the 13th century by the Franciscans and in the 14th century by the Cistercians.

The church is home to the Gothic carved alter “Maria und Jesuskind mit Vogel” (Mary and the child Jesus with bird) dating from 1420. The centre of the alter shows Mary with Jesus under a cross; Jesus is holding a bird in his hand. They are framed by saints: Katharina, Dorothea, Barbara and Gertrud. The twelve apostles are depicted on the very outside, on the sides of the alter. The interior furnishings of the church include a further figure of Mary, the limewood sculpture of the mother of God, “Maria mit Jesuskind und Apfel” (Mary with the child Jesus and apple) dating from 1390. and the gravestone of Gertrudis, which leads up to the alter as a step and is supposed to be the oldest gravestone in Mark Brandenburg. Up in the church tower, the two, 500-year-old old bells ring out and had previously been installed in the old church tower of Buckau’s cobblestone church.

In 1999, part of a baptismal angel was found under firewood in the chicken coop when the rectory was being renovated. A while later, the blessing hand of the Baroque sculpture was found in the rubble in the rectory courtyard. These finds were brought to Magdeburg and the parish has the angel restored there. Today, the baptismal angel floats above the choir of the village church in Buckau once again.
