The first documentary reference to the pilgrimage church was in 1344. It is one of the few Medieval brick village churches in Mark Brandenburg and a Gothic gem in Havelland. The church was built by the Brandenburg Cathedral Chapter, financed using money from indulgences and built modelled on the Petri-Kapelle (St. Peter’s Chapel) in Brandenburg.

A Eucharistic miracle probably took place at the end of the 14th century. In 1401, Pope Boniface IX issued an indulgence certificate for Buckow and authorised a seven year absolution from the punishment of sins. A “major pilgrimage” took numerous pilgrims “to the holy blood” in Buckow, “which was kept safe in the little church right by the altar in a large cabinet”. The church building was renovated from 1679 to 1681. The rest of the precious Medieval fittings had been lost by 1915. Since then, the church’s masonry is the only remaining evidence of the period when pilgrims sought absolution of sins and healing at one of Brandenburg’s most significant sacral monuments in terms of both art history and religious history.

In 2007/08, the church was to be sold by the “Evangelischen Reformationsgemeinde Westhavelland” (West Havelland Protestant Reformation Parish). The “Wallfahrtskirche zu Buckow” (Buckow pilgrimage church) friends’ association was founded on Ascension Day 2009. There are still many mysteries and open questions regarding the structural and usage history of the church! For example, a walled-up ring in the middle of the Medieval floor with water veins running below. Monument conservators suspect that it is a closed well. Who will solve the mystery?

Signposted one-hour pilgrimage trail (flyer available at the church).

Viewings from May to October from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Guided tours are available subject to pre-booking at +49 33878 900110.
