Peter and Paul church is a Evangelical Lutheran church in the vicinity of Bielefeld. Archeologists claim that the first wooden construction in the place of the modern church appeared a thousand years ago. Later the church was built in stone, while in 1230 it was expanded and renovated for the first time. There are a lot of religious rarities kept in the church – witnesses of the past thousand years. Among them, in particular, are a 14th century wooden gothic crucifix and a 16th century bronze bell, as well as a 17th century renaissance altar erected on stone tiles that remained from the first church of 1000.
Benches with names of noble parishioners who had permanent places for sermons have survived from later times. On the east part of the church, at the vestry door you can find an iron plank. In 17th-18th century local weavers used this 65 cm long plank to verify quality of manual spinning.
