The Church of St Mary in Angermünde was completed in around 1250 as the town’s parish church and is still largely in its original condition. Because the North of Brandenburg (Uckermark and Prignitz) is very stony, the material chosen to build the church was “fieldstone” (granite) – a building material that was in plentiful supply locally. It was deposited here during the Ice Age. To construct the church, the granite was hewn into roughly equal sized cubes and built up in layers of equal height. Granite is a very durable, hard-wearing material that was often used for building fortified churches. The attitude that Martin Luther described in the words to the hymn “A safe stronghold our God is still” is reflected in the church and its tower. The church in Angermünde was also built with this in mind, in the Romanesque style with a nave and chancel, in the 1st half of the 13th century. Work started on converting the building into the Gothic style around 100 years later: The vaulting and larger windows still bear witness to this today.

In olden times, the church had up to 17 side-altars, a large triumphal cross with nine saints’ figures and a Renaissance altar dating from 1600. All the murals were whitewashed over in the Post-Reformation years and in 1867. In 1909, the church was decorated with painted Gothic-style designs in dark colours. The seating, the altar with a copy of a Rubens and the pulpit date from the renovation in 1867.

The last restoration in 1978 was based on the colour scheme of 1526, with the old colours and ornamentations carefully refreshed and restored. The windows behind the altar date from the Art Nouveau era. One of the south chancel windows is made up of window fragments, obviously retrieved after the bombing damage in 1945. The Angermünde coat of arms with the date “April 26, 1945” in a south window in the nave refers to the end of the Second World War, when Angermünde surrendered without a fight.

Preserved parts of the Renaissance altar were erected in the North Chapel, the “winter church”. The bronze baptismal font (mid- 14th century), the treasure chest (end of the 13th century), the Krummkrüger family tree in sandstone (17th century) and the Wagner organ (1742-1744) have also survived. The Wagner organ is one of the most beautiful Baroque organs in the east of Germany. It has 30 stops and, on the outside, two zimbelsterns, two trumpets en chamade, two tremulants and two timpani which are played by the angels next to them. It also has around 2,000 sounding pipes. It is played in every service and for the Angermünde summer concerts.
