Alongside the castle, the “town church” is one of the oldest buildings in the town of Hoyerswerda. It is impossible to calculate the exact date, but one source cites the year 1346 as the first documentary reference to a late Gothic three-aisled hall church, with five pairs of pillars holding up a beautiful starry vault. After the imposing building in the town centre was hit by artillery fire and burnt down to its foundation walls in April 1945, many of its invaluable fittings were lost for ever including the pulpit, the altar and paintings.

Although the church nave had already been rebuilt by the end of the 1950s and could be used again, the church tower wasn’t reconstructed until 1985. An inscription in German and Sorbian reads “Mer budz z tobu - Friede sei mit dir” (“Peace be with you”) on the pointed arch of the church building, recalling how prayer services in the Johanneskirche were long held back-to-back in German and the local language, Sorbian. Today the church features an array of treasures: a Renaissance winged altar from 1581, a masterful sandstone font and sandstone pulpit, and a three-manual organ.

The church is part of the “Open Churches” initiative, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please enquire about tours of the church at the church office if interested.
