St. Nicolas Church in Döbeln

Church on the Luther Trail Saxony

St. Nicolai Church in Döbeln ©K. Lange

The church was first documented in 1293 and, after a devastating fire in 1333, was resurrected as an early-Gothic basilica, whose original western entrance from 1370 is still preserved. The church's current, late-Gothic features were attained in 1479 The mighty 60 m high tower was erected after the fires of 1629 and 1733. The most significant decorative piece is the 12 m high, 6-paneled late-Gothic carved altar from 1515/16, which originated from the so-called "Master of Döbeln high altars" (name unknown). Also notable are the pulpit from 1599, the sandstone baptismal font from 1603 and a holy communion relief from 1500. Also, the Eule Organ is one of the most significant in Saxony. In front of the church, a Luther monument has stood since 1902.

Döbeln is a station on the Saxon Luther Trail.
