Church of St. Elisabeth - True German Gothic

Elizabertkirhe in Marburg is one of the first Gothic churches in Germany. This very temple with gabled 80-meter towers served as an architectural model for the Cologne Cathedral. The construction of Elizabetkirhe was launched in 1235 at the initiative of the Teutonic Order. The spiritual-knighthood community devoted the Church of St. Elizabeth in Marburg to the daughter of the Hungarian king and the widow of the Landgrave of Thuringia. She founded a hospital in Marburg for the poor, where she lived, was treating the poor, died and was buried. Elizabeth was canonized, after which this saint became the spiritual patron of Thuringia and Hesse.

The ruins of the historic hospital have survived in the courtyard of the church, and next to the church you can see the buildings that belonged to the Teutonic Order. Inside the temple, the golden sarcophagus with the relics of St. Elizabeth and the amazing stained glass of the XIII-XIV centuries are the first things to attract attention. There are also richly decorated altars and a statue of St. Elizabeth of the XVI century in the church. A few bells of Elizabetkirhe, that are still working, date back to the XIII-XIV centuries. The last German Reich president Paul von Hindenburg is buried in the North chapel of the church.
