The previous church in Markau, presumably a fortified church, was destroyed during the Thirty Years’ War, right down to the ruins of the church tower. These cobblestone remains were used in the new building from 1704 to 1708 in the new tower up to the belfry together with brickwork. The magnificent, almost fully preserved north entrance dates from 1712. The church was decorated in the Baroque style from 1756 to 1763. One of the highlights is the eight metres high and six metres wide altar, which was constructed over three years from 1756 to 1758. The pulpit is another highly artistic piece. The figure of an angel holding up the pulpit is remarkable. The artist has succeeded in representing the lightness with which the angel carries the pulpit. To achieve this, he has depicted the angel as standing on one leg. On the other side, you can see the almost contactless connection between the graceful arm and the pulpit. This is completed by the smile on the angel’s face.

The patronage box was installed from 1760 to 1763. As a two storey structure that takes up an enormous amount of space in the church while at the same time representing the power and importance of the Lords von Bredow in Markau. The patronage box also contains wonderful carvings like those found on the altar and the organ. The Church of St. Nikolai has “some of the most ornate Baroque décor of any Märkisch village church” (Feustel) and a Baroque baptismal angel.

Viewings available by prior arrangement.
