Oberwesel Travel Tip:
Church of our Lady (Liebfrauenkirch)
Liebfrauenkirch and Oberwesel
Even from a distance, the Church of Our Lady, which is in a slightly elevated location at the southern end of Oberwesel, defines the appearance of the town. It is one of the very important high Gothic churches in Germany.
Formerly a collegiate church, the present construction was started in 1308, consecrated in 1331 and completed up to the base of the polygonal tower in 1351. Besides the fine structures of its components, the church’s architectonic quality is first and foremost revealed in its proportions. The flat surfaces of the structure were made possible by locating the buttresses inside the church. The rhythm of the exterior wall arises solely from the regularly spaced rows of slender, trefoil windows.
An exceptionally large stock of furnishings, dating back to the time of construction, has been preserved in the Church of Our Lady. Among other things, the furnishings include: the high altar, the choir screen, the tabernacle, the choir stalls, the preserved remains of stained glass and the bells. The bells were all cast upon or shortly after the completion of the church, during the course of the 14th up to the beginning of the 15th century.
