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.
