St. Severin, Keitum

4.5
Stop by St. Severin, a quaint and historic church dating back to the 13th century. The church is the oldest religious building in Schleswig-Holstein; historically, its tower has served as a navigation mark and the church itself has also been known to double up as a prison. Step inside and explore some of its Roman-era masonry and ancient artifacts, such as the baptismal font, which dates back to the 12th or 13th century. Admire the wooden interior, paintings and sculptures, and one of the largest church organs in northern Friesland.

  • Finally we succeeded, to visit the oldest religious building in Schleswig Holstein, we were lucky, because soon after a wedding should be celebrated here. Very nice, simple Church, with two galleries and a very beautiful polyptych. Who like to hear concerts, should look at the poster, hanging everywhere, also in Westerland on the cemetery to the Church takes you very much old tombs, old captain families and also quite a few famous people.

  • This little church has been looked after so well & was very interesting. The age & the history of this place was well kept. Loved it.
  • Beautifully kept and peaceful cemetary
  • Saint-Séverin is Church Keitum Keitumer Church to see, because it was built on the company point of Sylt Trudy Kernes of width. The Church has been mentioned since 1240. In the summer, organ concerts by candlelight held in the navigators Church. Is worth a visit: the baptismal font, carved altar, the pulpit, the chandeliers, paintings and sculptures, the Müller Chair, long story short... the entire interior and the exterior. The old gis'-Bell carries the inscription: "I lament dead, living urge I, God, the Lord, I praise". The fis'-Bell carries the inscription: "God, the Mr is Sun and shield" and two intricate rings, to the names of the bride and groom to the wedding, the Bell was donated.

  • Very beautiful church in the "middle" of Sylt. There's a famous organ, where regular concerts are played here. One of the lesser-known sights of Sylt.
